Andre 3000 will donate his unique jumpsuits to Miami's Art Basil Show next month.
Andre 3000’s infamous jumpsuits from Outkast’s recent 20th anniversary tour will be displayed during the Art Basil Show in Miami next month.
All of Andre’s 47 jumpsuits will make their way down to South Beach where they will be featured in the upcoming Art show titled “i feel ya: SCAD + André 3000 Benjamin.” The exhibition will explore “fashion, film and painting through the work of artist, musician, performer, fashion innovator,” including Andre 3000, filmmaker Greg Brunkalla, and painter Jimmy O’Neal.
In a press release that came out today, Andre had this to say about it:
“As I initially thought about displaying this collection, I immediately knew that I wanted to work with my longtime collaborative partners at SCAD. The diverse group of people that come to Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach are the right audience to see this for the first time.”
Andre designed these jumpsuits himself and chose to make bold statements with each individual piece, including phrases on the front like “have you stopped growing?”, “i've never been to Afrika” and “big girls are beautiful to me,” not to mention extra large “Sold Out” price tags on the side.
Take a look at a few of the suits in the gallery above, and if you wish to see them in person, the exhibit will run from Dec. 3 through December 13 at Mana Miami. It will also be showcased again, next summer, at the SCAD Museum in Savannah, Georgia if you can't make it next month.
