London’s Institute Of Contemporary Arts Showcases Artist-Designed Cars For The Olympics
The Institute of Contemporary Arts in London may be closing its doors during the Olympics to accommodate beach volleyball proceedings, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be exhibiting work. The museum is moving off-site during the games, featuring a unique collection of BMW racing cars adorned with the designs of famous contemporary artists in the city’s East End.
“Art Drive! BMW Art Car Collection” takes up six floors of a car park in Shoreditch, East London, showcasing customised vehicles painted by famous artists such as David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.
The art exhibit will take place as part of the London 2012 Festival, and runs until August 4, 2012.
