VIDEO: LaFerrari at the Art Basel Miami Exhibition
When art meets the world of the automobile, Ferrari somehow always gets to play a leading role. That was confirmed at a show being staged over these past few days in Miami, at the annual Art Basel Miami exhibition, a key event on the international cultural and artistic circuit.
On the top floor of 1111 Lincoln Road, the studio of Herzog & de Meuron architects has been transformed into an open car park featuring cars turned into sculptures by contemporary artists from around the world, including Damien Hirst, Keith Haring, Cesar and Kenny Scharf. The show, called “Piston Head: Artists Engage the Automobile” not only has the patronage of Ferrari, but also includes the brand’s LaFerrari supercar as part of the display.
The show was open until 8 December and included works from artists such as Dan Colen and Nate Lowman, Virginia Overton, Olivier Mosset/Jacob Kassay/Servane Mary, Richard Phillips, Richard Prince, Tom Sachs, Salvatore Scarpitta, and Franz West.
