Today, LFB will be taking part in “No Commission: Berlin,” an art exhibition created by Bacardi.
“No Commission” is an innovative Art and Music Platform created by BACARDÍ and The Dean Collection. The concept is pretty rad: artists receive support for their work and when they make a sale, receive 100% of the profits – thus the name “No Commission”. Pretty dope, right? “No Commission: Berlin” is an event taking place from tonight until Saturday in Rummelsburg which will be featuring art, live music and of course, BACARDÍ. Any event that is about supporting artists, getting them more visibility, and helping them to make a living is an event I definitely want to be a part of.
The event goes all through the weekend and will be featuring Major Lazer Soundsystem, Black Coffee, Kitty Cash, Swizz Beats, DJ Runna, Honey Dijon, Simon Kaiser, Noah Becker, Nico Adomako and Bakery, all curated by Swizz Beatz. Artwork will be displayed from Amaury Berillon, Morgan Blair, Walker Brengel, Jonas Burgert, Jens Einhorn, Kadara Enyeasi, Jamie Evans, Faile, Shepard Fairey, Wendy Fulenwider Liszt, Wyatt Gallery, Rachel Garrard, The Heliotrope Foundation, Nadine Ijewere, Paul Insect, Marcus Jahmal, Royal Jarmon, Manuel Kirsch, Jerome Lagarrigue, Caroline Larsen, Daniel Jack Lyons, Nelson Makamo, Jaybo Monk, Jayson Musson, Yoh Nagao, Musa N. Nxumalo, Okuda, Felipe Pantone, Fabio Ruffet, Jason Seife, Semra Sevin, Ming Smith, Matthew Stone, Rupert Whale and Zio Ziegler.
I have been lucky enough to have worked closely with BACARDÍ for some time now and recently had the pleasure of meeting Enrique Comas, global brand manager and BACARDÍ family member, at a dinner a few weeks ago at Soho House. Nothing makes me happier than working with companies who are using their size and influence to do incredible things – from supporting bartenders from around the world through the BACARDÍ Legacy Cocktail Competition, to supporting artists via No Commission.
