Fresh off the Press - The Fifth Edition

A first look at the fifth edition of the BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors

We are excited to announce that the updated and expanded 5th edition of the BMW Art Guide by Independent Collections has officially left the printers!

Consisting of 270 private yet publicly accessible collections of contemporary art, the Independent Collectors team has once again searched the globe high and low to find the large and small, the famous and the relatively unknown. Featuring 196 cities in 45 countries, the Art Guide remains your go-to-guide for access into the world’s most spectacular private collections. 

As well as adding new collections to the fifth edition, we’ve also made sure to update the entries from the past three editions, ensuring that you have the most up-to-date information on the world’s best collections. 

Originally developed in 2012 as a long term cooperation between BMW and Independent Collectors, the BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors was inspired by a common passion for contemporary art, and so a standard reference on collecting was born. Featuring texts by distinguished authors, the guide offers a wealth of information on the subject and stands for a new kind of cultural-entrepreneurial partnership. 

The BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors will officially launch at Frieze London and will be available from the beginning of October 2018 as a hardcopy and eBook. Head over to Hatje Cantz and start finding your favorite collections today!
