Swizz Beatz will host a three-day concert and art series in Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach in December to give upcoming musicians and artists a chance to showcase their work, Billboard reports. There will also be performances by his wife Alicia Keys, DMX, Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T and more.
The three-day event, Casa Bacardi at Wynwood, will run from Dec. 3-5 and be curated by The Dean Collection. One of the events will the No Commission Art Fair, where artists will display their work for free and take home all the proceeds from the art fair. There will also be a concert each night, the Bacardi Untameable House Party. The art fair is free and will be open to the public and the concert series is free with a RSVP.
“It’s by the artist, for the artist, with the people,” Swizzy told Billboard. “And I think a lot of people forgot the message of why they’re even going down to Basel. You’re going down to Basel because there are amazing, creative artists who took a lot of time out of their lives to put together some masterpieces and hope for entry in a great collection or for somebody to be inspired. And not taking anything away from Basel or from the galleries, but I just chose to do something different. And I think the world needs more powerful collaborations that are willing to push the envelope and not really follow the necessary rules that are laid out.”
