The Dean Collection and Bacardí present No Commission: Miami 2017, a three-day, art and music experience taking place December 7 to 9 at Soho Studios in Wynwood. No Commission is a roving experiential platform organized by the Dean Collection and Bacardí to forge a direct link between art and art patronage. No Commission is designed specifically to support artists in different territories around the world.
No Commission Miami 2017 casts a thematic light on "Island Might," which suggests the power and possibility, tradition and future of a place and its people. The "ways of an island" — its functioning components and life essentials are guiding principles. We examine family, land & sea, ritual, revolution, and color as elemental forces that can illuminate the roadmap for a more generous, stable fate.
The injection of immersive music performances from collaborator Bacardí shakes up the traditional art fair, creating a unique culture experience for visitors. Past performers have included Alicia Keys, Major Lazer, A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, DMX, Pusha T, and more. There are also some fantastic artist profiles of individuals who have gone on to find tremendous success following their No Commission exhibitions.
No Commission Miami is the sixth in a series of artist support collaborations. Past editions were held in Miami, New York, London, Shanghai and Berlin where artworks were sold and artists retained 100% of sales proceeds. The No Commission platform is realized through a partnership between Bacardí, Swizz Beatz, and the Dean Collection in their continued support of cultural visionaries around the world.
No Commission: Miami is open via invitation only on Thursday, December 7. On Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9, No Commission: Miami will be open to the public from noon to 5 p.m., and from 7 p.m. to midnight with valid registration.
