Legendary athletes get their jerseys hung in the rafters at their home stadiums. Epic artists like Andre 3000 get their jumpsuits placed on display at Art Basel in Miami, FL.
All 47 of Threestacks' custom jumpsuits are headed to Miami Beach to be a part of a new exhibit, held at Mana Miami, during the annual art, fashion and film fest. The showcase is called "i feel ya: SCAD + André 3000 Benjamin," and it will be presented by the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
"As I initially thought about displaying this collection, I immediately knew that I wanted to work with my longtime collaborative partners at SCAD," Andre shared in a press release. "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 his own attire for Outkast's 20th anniversary tour and he chose to make a statement with each piece.
Every single jumpsuit had bold phrases written across the chest like: "have you stopped growing?", "can one rest in peace and violence" and "big girls are beautiful to me," not to mention extra large "Sold Out" price tags.
"i feel ya" will also include a joint experimental film, directed by Greg Brunkalla, and additional abstract paintings by artist Jimmy Oneil.. The exhibit will run from Dec. 3 through December 13 at Mana Miami and will be showcased again, next summer, at the SCAD Museum in Savannah, Georgia.
