Drake Will Curate Music For Sotheby’s Art Show


Since his music shattered records with his surprise album earlier this year, Drake has been selected to use his musical talent to curate a new art show for Sotheby’s. According to Page Six, the Contemporary Black Art exhibition will “explore the dialogue between music and art.” Several well-known artists are set to be featured in the show including pieces from Jean-Michel Basquiat, Glenn Ligon, Kara Walker and Kehinde Wiley.

Drake will be responsible for choosing a song for each piece on display. Art lovers will be able to hear the music that will accompany each part of the exhibit at specified listening stations with Beats headphones. The show, which starts April 12, will also feature work from artists like Nick Cave, Rashid Johnson, Wangechi Mutu and David Hammons.

It should be noted that a Sotheby’s spokesperson said Drake won’t be getting paid for his curation.
