It’s no secret that Tommy Cash and Rick Owens are genuine fans of each other’s work—Owens was a guest artist on Cash’s ¥€$ project, and prior to that the designer opened his SS19 menswear show in Paris with an instrumental version of Cash’s track “Pussy Money Weed.” Now the two creatives are entangled once more, this time for a collaborative exhibition titled “The Pure and the Damned” which takes place at the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn, Estonia from May 3 until September 15.
The show will exhibit individual works of Cash and Owens, together with their jointly executed artworks made specifically for the show. Obviously, the two have vastly different creative practices and histories, but their interests overlap in compelling ways. The exhibition aims to explore Cash’s uncanny aesthetic whilst employing Owen’s approach to the balance between functional design.
“The Pure and the Damned” is a must-see for anyone interested in the rich intersection of the two creatives’ artistic positions.
