The super cool Art Drive! exhibition

The entrance and interior of the lift

 

Like I mentioned previously, there are endless arts and cultural events happening all over town during the Olympics, but the Art Drive! exhibition organised by the ICA is probably one of the coolest in town at the moment.

This 2-week free exhibition at the a multi-storey car park in Shoreditch ( yes, the entire car park has been turned into an exhibition space) showcases BMW’s art car collection from 1975-2010. I can’t think of a better venue for this exhibition esp. in an area like Shoreditch where street art and graffiti is in every corner. There are many big names like Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, David Hockney and Roy Lichtenstein etc, but it’s just wonderful to see them being displayed outside of a gallery/ museum space. Honestly, you don’t have be one of the ‘boys’ to be excited by these super cool cars!

Catch it before it ends next week!
