Porsche 911 GT2 Art Treatment

Argentinian artist Jorge Gomez will be exhibiting 24 very special works of art from South America at the Dr. Ing. H.c.f. Porsche AG, Stuttgart museum wich will be on public display from 20 September 2011 until 8 January 2012. Being an art lover as well as a big fan of the Porsche brand, Gomez simply combined the two resulting in a fascinating art form. The work on the skin of a racing car, inspired 19 important artists from Uruguay and Argentina, including Pablo Atchugarry, Rogelio Polesello and Jorge Ferreyra Basso to put their own signature in them, working with a variety of styles and materials, from acrylic to enamel to mosaic tiles and tyre rubber. The artworks are now exhibited in The Porsche Museum wich is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

New special exhibition from 20 September 2011 to 8 January 2012



"Coleccion Gomoz"


The Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, museum is paying tribute to 24 very special works of art with a new special exhibition. The exhibits in question, which will be on public display from 20 September 2011 until 8 January 2012 are paintings from South America. However, instead of resorting to conventional art materials, Porsche 911 GT2 sports car bonnets have been pressed into service as a "canvass". The project is the brainchild of Argentinian Jorge G?mez. As both art lover and big fan of the Porsche brand, he came up with the idea of simply combining his two biggest passions, linking two fascinating art forms in the process.


19 important artists from Uruguay and Argentina, including for example Pablo Atchugarry, Rogelio Polesello and Jorge Ferreyra Basso, accepted Gomez's invitation to lend Porsche bonnets their very own signature and put a creative twist on them. The work on the skin of a racing car inspired the artists to very different works, offering the beholder a great variety of styles and materials employed - from acrylic to enamel, from mosaic tiles to tyre rubber. But from time to time the works of art still fulfil their original purpose as car bonnets, because G?mez occasionally insists on fitting them on his own Porsche 911 GT2 and taking the artworks for a spin. The collection is now making its European debut in the Porsche museum, being exhibited against the impressive backdrop of 23,000 hp.


The Porsche Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For further information please visit www.porsche.com/museum.
