It is a case of so much to do, so little time for me right now, and with the London 2012 festival I really have been spoilt for choice when the odd free moment arises. However, I did manage to catch a glimpse of the ICA’s art drive at Great Eastern Street Car Park, although it closes tomorrow, it really is a special treat!
On display are 16 BMW’s which have been completely repainted by artists ranging from David Hockney to Esther Mahlango. Being a pop art fanatic, the floor filled by Warhol, Lichtenstein and Rauschenberg really stood out for me, particulary Rauschenberg, whose photographic transfers of Ingres painting stood out among the bright colours of artists like Jeff Koons and Sandro Chia.
For those who are around the Shoreditch area tomorrow, I strongly suggest that you take the chance to see the cars before they move to a new car park else where.
