Comments Off on André 3000’s Custom Jumpsuits Are on Display at Art Basel, Miami
Outkast is art, and it’s as simple as that. Even when Big Boi and Andre 3000 aren’t on the mic, they are creating and expressing themselves. On Tuesday evening (Dec.2), Art Basel Miami Beach opened up the talked about exhibit with 47 jumpsuits previously worn by Three Stacks. Simply titled “i feel ya: SCAD + André 3000 Benjamin,” the installation is happening now at The Savannah College of Art and Design Museum’s pop-up at Mana Miami. To go along with Andre’s jumpsuit display, filmaker Greg Brunkalla created a short movie with 3000’s quotes as subtitles
The “i feel ya” exhibition will run until Dec. 7.

UPDATE: The FADER sent musician Nicolas Jaar to the exhibition to chat with Andre 3000 about the idea behind his jumpsuits, OutKast’s 20th anniversary tour and being a “sell-out.” Read the interview here.
Honestly, just, you know — I didn’t wanna do the tour. We hadn’t performed in 10 years. It was old songs. I’m like, How am I gonna present these songs? I don’t have nothing new to say. So I was like, maybe I can start saying new stuff while doing these old songs. It became a theme where I was more excited about this than the actual show. This is fun, running out in these.
