The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago has is now selling advance tickets for Virgil Abloh's upcoming "Figures of Speech" exhibition.

The exhibition is the first devoted entirely to the genre-bending American artist and designer, and will offer an in-depth look at defining highlights of his career so far. According to the museum, it will include "signature clothing collections, video documentation of iconic fashion shows, distinctive furniture and graphic design work, and collaborative projects with artists such as Jenny Holzer, Arthur Jafa, and John Baldessari."

Abloh referenced the exhibition in a recent Instagram post outlining his plans for 2019. "My narrative for 2019 is to finally reveal the rationale that exists underneath my creative outputs as one body of work, versus the fragmented projects as they naturally exist now," he wrote.

“Figures of Speech” will be open to the public from June 10 until September 22. You can purchase advance tickets over at MCA Chicago's website right now. A limited number of walk-up tickets will also be made available during the exhibition's run.
