Thousands of artists, gallerists, collectors and enthusiasts from all over the globe flock to the Swiss cultural capital each year to soak up the buzz around Art Basel – and you could be among them, enjoying exclusive preview access, a world premiere viewing and a meet-the-artist event at this glittering gathering of the international art world.

The cultural heavyweight city of Basel – where stunning architecture by Renzo Piano, Frank Gehry and Herzog & de Meuron sits among the Swiss scenery – features the first collection of art accessible to the public in Europe and a picturesque old town with buildings dating back over five centuries. Leaving the historic streets behind, guests will have access to the best of modern and contemporary art in an exclusive preview of the world-renowned Art Basel exhibition.

For those passionate about art, the opportunity to view the world premiere of an installation by Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde will be an undoubted highlight. Roosegaarde, whose projects often employ technology and interactivity and have an environmental focus, has previously installed his work along a dyke, at Schiphol Airport and at Amsterdam Central Station, as well as exhibiting at the Rijksmuseum, Tate Modern and Tokyo National Museum.

His work will be on show at the evening BMW cocktail reception, an excellent opportunity to mix with your fellow BMW i8 owners, while attendees will have the chance to meet Roosegaarde at an official BMW event the next day, as well as enjoy the exhibition’s many highlights one last time.

This event includes the following benefits:

  • Welcome reception on 11 June from 02.30pm – 04.00pm on the rooftop terrace of the Pullman Basel Europe hotel
  • Two exclusive preview tickets for Art Basel in Basel for one BMW i Pure Impulse member and one guest
  • Exclusive BMW cocktail reception with world premiere of a Daan Roosegaarde art installation on 11 June
  • Access to meet-the-artist event on 12 June with Daan Roosegaarde
