BMW is celebrating its 10th anniversary of working with Paris Photo.
BMW is celebrating its 10th anniversary of working with Paris Photo and this year BMW is presenting the M1 BMW Art Car by Andy Warhol, created by the pop artist in 1979, in addition to a special set of photos of the 6 Series Gran Coupe.
BMW is also going to show off rare making of footage of Andy Warhol’s work on the M1 BMW Art Car. Originally raced in Le Mans, Warhol in his own words meant to “give a vivid depiction of speed. If a car is really fast, all contours and colors will become blurred.”
BMW will also present a mini series of Burlesque Style Photos with the 6 Series Gran Coupe by internationally renowned German photographer Uwe Düttmann. Four photos showcasing the 650i Gran Coupe in a retro setting celebrate film noir as well as the extraordinary sensuality of the best of burlesque vis-à-vis the high-tech design of one of the most advanced automobiles of our time.
“BMW is pleased to be involved in the inaugural Paris Photo LA,” said Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO, BMW of North America. “We are particularly looking forward to bringing out Andy Warhol art car and debuting our new photos.”
