From 14 to 17 June 2018, the Swiss edition of Art Basel will once again offer extensive insights into the work of over 4,000 artists, represented by 290 of world's leading galleries. As longstanding global partner of the shows in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, BMW will once more offer its VIP shuttle service and invite visitors to the BMW Reception as well as the BMW Art Journey Talk.

On the first preview day of the show, BMW will host an exclusive reception at UBS Forum with Art Basel and UBS. Together with the Basel Chamber Orchestra, Samson Young, winner of the first BMW Art Journey, will perform an arrangement of one of the movements from his recent composition 'Such Sweet Thunder', which incorporates recordings of bells collected during his journey.

Celebrating the third anniversary of the BMW Art Journey, the BMW Art Journey Talk will take place on 13 June. As part of a panel, three former winners of the BMW Art Journey will talk about their experiences, encounters and insights gained during their respective journeys. The event will feature Hong Kong-born media artist and composer Samson Young, British artist and graduate of English Literature Abigail Reynolds and Los Angeles-based artist and landscape architect Max Hooper Schneider.

The next winner of the BMW Art Journey will be announced during the talk. The nominees are: Ali Kazim, represented by Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai, Zac Langdon-Pole, represented by Michael Lett, Auckland, and Gala Porras-Kim, represented by Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles.

In addition to Art Basel in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, BMW supports renowned art fairs and art initiatives including TEFAF, Gallery Weekend and Kochi Muziris Biennale. BMW further cooperates on a long-term basis with cultural institutions and creative minds the world over to promote formats such as BMW Tate Live or Preis der Nationalgalerie.
