Swiss Beatz BACARDI and The Dean Collection Present No Commission: Art

No Commission is a contemporary art fair, curated by music producer Swizz Beatz and The Dean Collection, to forge a direct link between artists’ practices and art patronage. The platform is designed specifically to support both new and established artists. All artists are given their exhibition space for free and 100% of the sale of each artwork goes directly to the artists. The injection of immersive music performances from event collaborator BACARDÍ, 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, music producer and global chief creative of culture for family-owned Bacardi.

“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!”

“This isn’t just about slapping a logo on an event. This is about creating a global movement and cultural experience that artists and fans genuinely want to be part of. We don’t just bring the music and the cocktails. BACARDÍ provides the platform for artists and lifts the night-time experience, taking it to a whole other level.”
