Virgil Abloh is due to open his first solo exhibition in 2019 at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Fresh from winning the British Fashion Award for Best Urban Luxe Brand earlier this year, the designer continues to build his name and brand, utilizing his background in architecture and graphic design.
The self-titled exhibition charts Abloh’s journey from working with Kanye West to eventually launching his own brand, OFF-WHITE, which has since gained a massive following. Also featuring in the exhibition will be pieces from his numerous collaborations – including his award-winning “The TEN” series with Nike.
Alongside the exhibited work will be an opportunity for visitors to attend workshops and events aimed at educating and empowering young people. Last month, Abloh teamed up with the Hacienda’s Ben Kelly on a new, interactive club installation called “Ruin.” Hosted in London’s store studios, you can find out more about it here.
The exhibition is slated to run from June 9th, 2019 – September 22nd, 2019.
