Following the success of previous events in Miami in 2015 (covered) and New York in 2016 (covered), London will be the first European city to host immersive art and music event No Commission presented by The Dean Collection & Bacardi from December 8-10. Curated by music producer Swizz Beatz, the art fair is designed specifically to support both new and established artists. All participants are given their exhibition space for free and 100% of the sale of each artwork goes directly to the artists. Immersive music performances from event collaborator Bacardi shakes up the traditional art fair creating a unique, cultural experience for visitors.
“Our theme for No Commission: London is ‘Juxtaposition’ and celebrates the journey from street art to fine art. Visitors will experience art and music, street art and fine art, street culture and high culture, a bit of grit, a bit of glamour,” explains Swizz Beatz. “It’s great to be in the UK. London in particular has a strong connection with graffiti and contemporary art. But it doesn’t stop here. We want to take No Commission around the world!”
