The Rolls-Royce Art Programme has, since conception been a celebration of contemporary art, emerging technology and bold ideas. The Programme brings new works and perspectives to the art world, and honours the spirit of creative excellence that Rolls-Royce shares with the international art community.
WHERE ART CONNECTS
Through close partnerships with prominent institutions and artists, the Rolls-Royce Art Programme makes new works of international merit possible.
Curation, conversation and collaboration are the cornerstones of the programme, which proudly champions established and emerging artists through its calendar of exhibitions and events.
Exploring the parallel worlds humans share with the creatures and matter around them, Tomás Saraceno’s ‘Particular Matter(s) Jam Session’ can be seen as an immersive installation at the Carte Blanche exhibition, “On Air”, Palais de Tokyo, Paris. It investigates and uncovers the unseen relationship between sound, atmosphere and living beings, amplifying the unheard vibrations in every movement.
By commissioning artists, we bring new ideas to the forefront of the art world and provide a platform for visionaries to explore their talents and ambitions. Visionaries like Dan Holdsworth, who recently created three fascinating films revealing the majestic topography of three Alpine glaciers showcasing their intricacy like never before.
Through its curatorial relationships, Rolls-Royce makes new works, exhibitions and collections possible at world-class institutions around the globe.
"One of the important things about making art is the idea of getting to a certain kernel of truth."
Isaac Julien, Artist
Collaborations with respected artists enable the realisation of new projects and the exploration of new areas of practice.
Art Talks are dynamic events hosted by the Rolls-Royce Art Programme that have exploratory dialogue at their heart.
Facilitating conversations between leading members of the international art community, Art Talks open up new frontiers in the way we think and talk about art.
These significant occasions on the international art calendar bring together artists, curators and collectors for insightful and passionate conversations on topical themes and events.
The Rolls-Royce Art Programme is a global celebration of contemporary art.
