The Dean Collection and BACARDÍ present No Commission: Miami 2018, a two-day, art and music fair taking place December 6 – 7, 2018, at Faena Forum in Miami Beach. No Commission Miami 2018 was created by BACARDÍ and The Dean Collection to forge a direct link between art and art patronage, while simultaneously supporting artists from around the world. This year’s theme, “Take the Shot,” focuses on the medium of photography and examines photography in the digital age by highlighting practitioners who have emerged as compelling narrators of our time.
The injection of immersive music performances from collaborator BACARDÍ shakes up the traditional art fair, creating a unique cultural experience for visitors. While we can’t share names yet for the upcoming iteration, past performers have included Alicia Keys, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Pusha T and more.
Since its inception, No Commission has challenged traditional art fair formats by breaking down barriers for artists and collectors alike – giving artists free exhibition space and total control of sales. Admission to the event is free and accessible to all – including both seasoned collectors and first-time buyers, who are seeking to break into the art scene by celebrating living artists and making their support even more impactful. All exhibitions are curated by The Dean Collection and all artists keep 100% of their profits.
