“I Like It Like This, presented by S|2 in collaboration with Drake, is a celebration of Black-American contemporary artists.
I Like It Like This, the “selling exhibition” at Sotheby’s that pairs contemporary art made by black artists with songs picked by Drake
The exhibit features about 20 works from renowned Blacks artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Rashid Johnson, Kara Walker and Wangechi Mutu and Kehinde Wiley. (Visitors can hear the songs at listening stations adjacent to the works.)
Songs like Kendrick Lamar’s “Fuck Your Ethnicity” and ILoveMakonnen’s “Rumors” are paired with paintings, sculptures, and abstract artwork throughout the S:2 gallery.
Drake’s curated “I Like It Like This” collection will be on view through June 12 at the Sotheby’s NYC headquarters.
