Il numero che anni fa mi diede una certa notorietà era questo: facevo sparire una grossa oca. La mettevo sotto un telo scuro e lei spariva. Nessuno capiva come facessi. Vi dirò la verità: neanche io. Era l’oca che era brava.
The BMW Art Car Project was introduced by the French racecar driver and auctioneer Hervé Poulain, who wanted to invite an artist to create a canvas on an automobile. It was in 1975, when Poulain commissioned American artist and friend Alexander Calder to paint the first BMW Art Car. This first example would be a BMW 3.0 CSL which Poulain himself would race in the 1975 Le Mans endurance race. Since Calder’s work of art, many other renowned artists throughout the world have created BMW Art Cars, including David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol. - Via: 1 | 2 | 3
