Paula Wallace and André 3000 Benjamin conversation at Design Miami Collector’s Breakfast

SCAD president and founder Paula Wallace talks with André 3000 Benjamin about the inspiration behind the collaborative exhibition “i feel ya: SCAD + André 3000 Benjamin” on Dec. 4 at the Design Miami Collector’s Breakfast.

André 3000, half of six-time Grammy Award-winning duo OutKast, designed 46 custom jumpsuits featuring different phrases emblazoned across the chest — one for each stop on the group’s recent 20-year reunion tour. The phrases are his way of saying something new as an artist while performing songs he had written, in some cases, decades ago, he tells Wallace.

For the “i feel ya,” exhibition, which ran Dec. 3-14 at the Mana Miami Wynwood in Miami, Florida, the jumpsuits were featured in one space for the first time alongside an experimental film by Greg Brunkalla and oversized mirror paintings by Jimmy O’Neal, both SCAD alumni.
