See the unseen.
An artist’s Journey made possible.

The BMW Art Journey is a joint initiative of Art Basel and BMW and can take an artist almost anywhere in the world – to research, to network, to envision and create new work. Artists showing in Art Basel’s selection for emerging artists in Hong Kong are eligible for the BMW Art Journey.

You are invited to learn more about these travels and see the world through the eyes of a new generation of international artists being transformed into unique artistic projects.

See the unseen. Join the Journey.

Creative Partnership

The BMW Art Journey, which recognizes and supports the work of some of the most promising artists working today, is the latest in a broad range of cultural projects for BMW. For over forty years the BMW Group has initiated more than one hundred cultural partnerships worldwide in the areas of modern and contemporary art, jazz and classical music, as well as
architecture and design. Unrestricted freedom of creative potential is of the utmost importance to the long-term cultural engagements of BMW.

Art Basel stages the world’s premier art shows for Modern and contemporary works, sited in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique, which is reflected in its participating galleries, artworks presented, and the content of parallel program- ming produced in collaboration with local institutions for each edition. In addition to ambitious stands featuring leading galleries from around the world, each show’s singular exhibition sectors spotlight the latest developments in the visual arts, offering visitors new ideas, new inspiration and new contacts in the art world.
