Music power couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz (Kasseem Dean) will showcase their extensive art collection next February at the Brooklyn Museum. Dubbed Giants, the forthcoming show marks the first time the Dean Collection will view to the public and includes an extraordinary list of prominent and emerging artists from the Black diaspora.

Housed on the first floor of the institution, the show’s title alludes to the “strengths and bonds between the Deans and the artists they support,” according to a release by the Brooklyn Museum. “Along with examining these links and legacies, the exhibition will encourage “giant conversations” inspired by the works on view—critiquing society and celebrating Blackness.”

While details surrounding the collection are still under wraps, the show will include works from 40 prominent black artists, such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Meleko Mokgosi, Jamel Shabazz, Derrick Adams and Arthur Jafa. “Swiss Beatz and Alicia Keys have been among the most vocal advocates for Black creatives to support Black artists through their collecting, advocacy, and partnerships,” said Brooklyn Museum director, Anne Pasternak.

Giants will open on February 10 and run through July 10.
