Addicted To Retail (ATR) presents: No Commission: Art Performs Art Fair by Swizz Beatz and Bacardi in The Bronx.
No Commission is a contemporary art fair curated by Swizz Beatz, Bacardi and The Dean Collection to forge a direct link between artists’ practices and art patronage. Featuring musical performances, visual art galleries and immersive installations. No Commission is a platform that is designed specifically to support artists. All artists are given their exhibition space for free and 100% of the sale of each artwork goes directly back to the artists.
No Commission Art Performs is a series of artist support collaborations between BACARDÍ and The Dean Collection. The first edition of No Commission coincided with Art Basel Miami in 2015, where over $1 million in art were sold during the fair.
The No Commission experience is brought to life through a partnership between BACARDÍ, Swizz Beatz, and The Dean Collection in their continued support of cultural visionaries around the world.
No Commission: Art Performs was held in the birthplace of Dean Collection founder Swizz Beatz, and a neighborhood celebrated for its role in the genesis of contemporary art and music. Bacardi and The Dean Collection are championing this spirit of creativity to celebrate a community that has been and remains integral to New York’s cultural heritage.
Using the South Bronx as a point of inspiration, regeneration and optimism are the fair’s guiding principles. The exhibition highlights artists who explore hybridity and colorful exuberance in their artistic narratives.
