Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
The updated BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors presents 256 private yet publicly accessible collections of contemporary art — featuring large and small, famous and the relatively unknown. Succinct portraits of the collections with countless color illustrations take the reader to more than 43 countries, often to regions or urban districts that are off the beaten path. To date, neither the Internet nor any book has ever contained a comparable assembly of international private collections, including several that have opened their doors for the first time.
The Art Guide was first developed in 2012 as a long-term cooperation between BMW and Independent Collectors. Inspired by a common passion for contemporary art, a standard reference on collecting was born.
Featured collections include: Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), White Rabbit – Contemporary Chinese Art Collection, Lyon Housemuseum, Maison Particulière, Vanhaerents Art Collection, Herbert Foundation, Verbeke Foundation, Inhotim – Instituto de Arte Contemporânea & Jardim Botânico, Rennie Collection at Wing Sang, M Woods, Collection Lambert, La Maison Rouge, Rosenblum Collection, Museum Frieder Burda, Sammlung Boros, Sammlung Hoffmann and Museum Biedermann, among others.
