No Commission London

Bacardi X The Dean Collection

The Dean Collection and Bacardi presented NO COMMISSION: LONDON, a three-day experiential celebration of art and music in our Southwark Arches.

Following on from sell-out shows in Miami and the Bronx, this contemporary art fair showcased the works of Ricardo Cavolo, Conor Harrington and d*face to name but a few. NO COMMISSION is a platform designed to specifically support the artist with 100% of the artwork sales going directly to them. It is ‘by the artists for the artists, with the people’, promoting the need for a direct link between artists’ practices and art patronage.

Swizz Beatz described the event as an opportunity for visitors to ‘experience art and music, street art and fine art, street culture and high culture, a bit of grit, a bit of glamour’. Live music acts and DJ’s added another layer of creativity with established artists such as Blood Orange, Lady Leshurr and Emile Sande performing.
