BMW brings burlesque, Warhol, M1 and 6 Series Gran Coupe to Paris Photo LA
BMW has worked with Paris Photo for ten years. This year, the photography exposition lands in Paramount Studios in Los Angeles for the first time, and BMW is not only coming with it, the Bavarians are bringing the most famous Art Car of all: the 1979 M1 painted by Andy Warhol. For those attending the show, there will also be making-of video of Warhol working on the car – but if you remember the mini lecture that EVO magazine’s Henry Catchpole gave on the Art Cars, you’ll remember that Warhol finished the car so quickly that the cameraman barely had time to get the film rolling.
With that will also be a series of photos of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe dropped into noir scenes accompanied by burlesque models, all taken by photographer Uwe Düttmann. It’s the first time they’ll be exhibited at Paris Photo. You can check out a few of them in the high-res gallery above, and there’s a press release below with more info.
