Media Alert: Jeff Koons to Unveil his BMW Art Car for US premiere at Art Basel in Miami Beach PR Newswire Dec. 3 Artist Jeff Koons and supermodel Karolina Kurkova will reveal Koon's BMW Art Car, the M3 GT2 race car for its North American premiere the night of the opening day of Art Basel in Miami Beach. During a VIP reception in the Botanical Gardens across the entrance of the South Beach Convention Center, the Jeff Koons BMW Art Car will be displayed for the first time in the US and will remain there until finally of the fair. Another legendary "rolling sculpture," created by Andy Warhol, will be on display in Art Basel's Collectors Lounge. The pop art icon painted a BMW M1 that raced in the 24-hour race at Le Mans in 1979. The BMW Art Car Collection started when French racing driver and auctioneer Herve Poulain invited his friend Alexander Calder to design his BMW Le Mans 24-hour race car in 1975 and so the BMW Art Car was born. Since then some of the greatest names in contemporary art have been added to the collection creating a wide range of artistic interpretations and there are now 17 BMW Art Cars in total. BMW has been a partner of Art Basel in Miami Beach since its inception and also provides the VIP shuttle service for the fair.
