The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago is joining its New York counterparts and hopping on the fashion exhibit train. Next June, the Museum will be debuting Virgil Abloh, an exhibit dedicated to the designer famous for his luxury label Off-White.
This is the first exhibition dedicated to Abloh's multi-medium work. In addition, the exhibit will also highlight Abloh's many contributions to design, and offer youth-oriented programing aimed at inspiring the next generation of artists.
The exhibition offers an in-depth look at the Chicago-based artist’s ability to fuse fashion, architecture, music and design. Abloh's past Off-White collections are presented in mannequin displays alongside video documentation of his most iconic shows. The exhibition also features his work in other mediums, including furniture design, graphic design work, architectural interventions, and collaborative projects with other designers and artists such as Peter Saville and Tom Sachs.
This exhibition is organized by Michael Darling, James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator. It will be presented in the Griffin Galleries of Art on the museum’s fourth floor.
