“Visionaire Racing” is the new, action-packed interactive exhibition at The Gallery in Cadillac House. The exhibit is based on 1980s Japanese cult miniature 4WD model-making and racing competitions, and Visionaire brings its own artistic and curatorial twist to the construction and the sport of miniature car racing.
In keeping with traditional Mini Yonku racing, both novice and professional racers as well as visitors to Cadillac House are invited to CONSTRUCT (car kits are available for purchase), CREATE (with an array of colourful embellishments) and COMPETE on the East Coast’s largest Tamiya Mini 4wd racing track.
Traditionally, this international phenomenon is about speed, along with personal expression and style. Visionaire Racing and Cadillac’s approach is focused on individuals’ creativity in both racing and artistic expression.
Participants can decorate their own Mini 4WD race cars, taking inspiration from Artist Cars on display by Tom Sachs, Marilyn Minter, Virgil Abloh, Laurie Simmons, Nicola Formichetti, Will Cotton, Kristin Baker, Heron Preston, Liz Cohen, Ryan McNamara, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Justin Adian, Bill Powers, Modem, Toland Grinnell, Jon Kessler, Van Neistat, Bob Rubin, Giacomo Di Mura and more.
Visitors can bring their own Tamiya Mini 4WD cars, buy cars on-site to race and keep, or race and return one of the available cars.
