Virgil Abloh has steadily made a name for himself. After collaborating with nearly everyone, including Kanye West, Jenny Holzer, Lil Uzi, IKEA, and Planned Parenthood, Abloh is preparing for yet another project. Slated for 2019, Abloh's work will be the subject of a new exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
The museum, located in his hometown of Chicago, will take a look at his journey from working with West to launching his streetstyle brand with a cult following, Off-White. It will also feature pieces from his numerous collaborations, including works from “The Ten,” his award-winning partnership with Nike.
The show will also take a look past Abloh’s fashion work to his ventures in furniture design, architecture, and graphic design. Accompanying the exhibition will be a series of events directed towards inspiring, educating, and empowering youth.
While we wait in anticpation for the show to open in a year and a half, we at least have Off-White's Fall 2018 presentation to look forward to in March.
Virgil Abloh is slated to run June 9th, 2019 to September 22th, 2019 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
