Madonna, Sean Penn, Ariana Grande Will Throw Art Basel Bash to Benefit Malawi

How to possibly stand out amidst the celebrity din at Art Basel? Have Madonna and Sean Penn in the same room, certainly.

The once married and legendarily controversial couple will indeed be together again – as The Material Girl hosts a benefit for her own Raising Malawi charity (her son and daughter, David and Mercy, were both adopted from the southeastern African nation) at Miami’s new Faena Forum on December 2. Penn will be joined by special guests Chris Rock, Ariana Grande and Master of Ceremonies James Corden, for an evening of “music, art, mischief and performance.”

Guests will have an opportunity to bid on works by as yet unannounced marquee name and up-and-coming artists, and proceeds will go towards the building of the Mercy James Institute of Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care in Malawi – which is scheduled to open in 2017.
