Cars presents works from the Daimler Art Collection by artists Andy Warhol, Robert Longo, Sylvie Fleury, and Vincent Szarek. Common to all of them is their examination of the history, the models, or the design of Mercedes-Benz automobiles. The core of the exhibit is the Cars series by Andy Warhol (1928–1987), comprising thirty-five silkscreen paintings that employ selected Mercedes models to document the car’s history. Joining this unfinished series are drawings and airbrush paintings by Robert Longo (*1953). Videos by Sylvie Fleury (*1961) blend the myth of the legendary Mercedes-Benz with some of the most contemporary ideas from the worlds of art and fashion. Vincent Szarek (*1973) takes design elements from the Mercedes-Benz SLR as the starting point for his group of sculptures, which with the use of three-dimensional programs were digitally developed as a modern form of drawing. Exhibition schedule: Albertina, Vienna, January 21–May 16, 2010
