THE GLASS HOUSE…

revisited by Frank Stella…

from MUTUAL ART 

The Philip Johnson Glass House Oral History Project records the memories and reflections of some the worlds most important architects, artists and scholars about one of the 20th Century’s most influential architects and design legacies — Philip Johnson, the Glass House and Modernism & Leadership more broadly. The Glass House offers a unique context for eliciting memories from people who were Philip Johnson’s friends, students, associates and collaborators.

The first phase of this project, completed in July, 2009, resulted in two short films. Frank Stella: Return to the Glass House, features artist Frank Stella as he explores the grounds and shares his memories while he revisits his work installed throughout the site.

BMW ART CARS…

35 years of painted racing machines…

from BMW

The concept for the BMW art cars was introduced by Hervé Poulain, an auctioneer and ardent racing driver from France. Poulain was searching for a link between art and cars and he asked his friend and renowned artist Alexander Calder to paint a rolling canvas on the BMW 3.0 CSL that he would race in the 1975 Le Mans endurance race. Poulain’s 3.0 CSL was the first car to create a symbiosis between the world of art and the world of motorsport. Prompted by enormous enthusiasm for this work of art on wheels, BMW then decided to put its brilliant idea of establishing the Art Car Collection into practice.
