Renowned power couple Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys have exciting news for art enthusiasts as they prepare to exhibit pieces from their extraordinary art collection at the prestigious Brooklyn Museum.
The announcement, made on Friday via their Instagram accounts, showcased the couple seated amidst some of the remarkable paintings and artworks in their possession.
The upcoming exhibition, titled “GIANTS: Art from the Dean Collection of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys,” is scheduled to open its doors on February 10, 2024, at the Brooklyn Museum.
The dynamic duo expressed their enthusiasm in the caption, stating, “Been holding this incredible news close to the chest. Now, it’s our pleasure to officially announce GIANTS: Art from the Dean Collection of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys opening on February 10 @brooklynmuseum! Tickets to #GiantsBkM available now!!!!!! A MUST SEE SHOW. Let’s get 2024 started!! A BIG special thank you to all the GIANTS in the show!!! @TheDeanCollection.”
Swizz Beatz, who served on the museum’s board from 2015 until October of the previous year, has been a passionate art collector since the ’90s. The couple’s extensive collection features rare pieces, including the 2018 Derrick Adams painting titled “Floater 74,” which will be part of the exhibition.
Kimberli Gant, a curator of modern and contemporary art involved in organizing the installment, highlighted the Deans’ significant brand recognition. She emphasized that while many are familiar with them, not everyone knows about their role as collectors.
Swizz Beatz shared insights into their collection, revealing a commitment to acquiring works from African-American artists, even when there wasn’t a widespread market for it. “The reason why we doubled down on African American art is because people weren’t collecting it. Things flow a little better now,” he explained.
Art enthusiasts and the general public are eagerly anticipating the exhibition, which promises to offer a captivating glimpse into the artistic world curated by Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys. Tickets for “GIANTS: Art from the Dean Collection” are already available for those eager to witness this remarkable showcase.
