Theaster Gates

Medium: Installation

Both these dudes have huge philanthropic streaks. In 2011, Swizz was named Chair of the Bronx Charter School for the Arts. He even appeared alongside the Dali Lama once to discuss "healing through art and philanthropy work." Gates, one of the art world's rising stars, has redirected his creativities into urban planning to reinvigorate communities. And get this—Swizz has produced songs for Beyonce; this last winter at Art Basel, she was caught Instagramming in front of a Theaster Gates piece. Sometimes, you just can't make these things up—it's the way things are or were meant to be.
