Giants: Art from the Dean Collection of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys celebrates selections from the world-class collection of musical and cultural icons Swizz Beatz (Kasseem Dean) and Alicia Keys. Giants focuses on over 100 works by nearly 40 multigenerational Black American, African, and African diasporic artists in the Dean Collection,

hand-picked and curated by the Brooklyn Museum for a major exhibition.

Both book and exhibition bring together these ‘giants’ of the art world to embody and highlight the Deans’ collecting philosophy: ‘by the artist, for the artist, with the people.’

Interview by Kimberli Gant, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Brooklyn Museum.
