That SpottieOttieDopalicious fashion sense that Andre 3000's been giving us since the '90s is museum-worthy these days. His jumpsuits worn alongside Big Boi during OutKast's surprise, worldwide 20th-anniversary reunion tour will be available for public viewing this December via Art Basel Miami Beach.

The annual exhibition, the "world's premier art show for international Modern and contemporary works," according to Art Basel's website, will feature the 47 custom-made jumpsuits designed by Dre, on display all together for the first time.

Also included in the exhibit are large-scale abstract paintings by visual artist Jimmy O'Neal, which reflect the phrases that Dre printed on his jumpsuits, and a film directed by Greg Brunkalia.

The showcase is being presented by Savannah College of Art and Design and the SCAD Museum of Art, and will head to Savannah, Ga., next, in 2015.

Both O'Neal and Brunkalia are SCAD alumni.

“As I initially thought about displaying this collection, I immediately knew that I wanted to work with my longtime collaborative partners at SCAD," Dre said via statement. "The diverse group of people that come to Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach are the right audience to see this for the first time."

i feel ya: SCAD + Andre 3000 Benjamin will be held Dec. 3–14 at Mana Miami in Florida.
