Swizz Beatz & Alicia Keys announce world tour for ‘GIANTS’ art exhibition

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys announced that their acclaimed art exhibition, “GIANTS: Art from the Dean Collection of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys,” will embark on a world tour, per artsy.net. After debuting at the Brooklyn Museum, the exhibition will next appear at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. Although specific dates and further details are pending, the couple is excited to expand the reach of their collection.

“Our mission has always been about making art accessible to everyone and showcasing these GIANT artists,” the Dean family stated. “We realised quickly that meant this collection had to travel to communities across the country and the world.”

Swizz Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, highlighted his personal connection to Atlanta as a key factor in selecting the city. “ATL is an important part of my story since I went to Stone Mountain High, Redan High, and Open Campus. I started DJing parties as a kid at Atrium and Club Flavors too! So, bringing Giants to the High is an art homecoming for me!” he said.

Closing at the Brooklyn Museum on July 7th, “GIANTS” features around 100 artworks from Black diasporic artists, including Derrick Adams, Mickalene Thomas, Arthur Jafa, Kehinde Wiley, Amy Sherald, and Barkley L. Hendricks. The exhibition aims to elevate both established and emerging Black artists on a global stage.
