In a partnership that allows Drake to explore the connection between art and music, he has curated an exhibition for Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Department called ”I Like It Like This.” The concept of the collaboration is to draw a bridge between the prestigious and sometimes exclusionary world of art with the youth-driven culture behind modern-day music. Featuring black American contemporary artists including Kara Walker, Jean-Michel Basquiat among others, the pieces are accompanied by iPads preloaded with music selected by Drizzy that work to compliment the pieces in a sensory amalgamation of expression. To get a better understanding of the exhibition, listen to the curator himself talk about it in the video above and if you want to check it out, it is open to the public at Sotheby’s New York City until June 12.
