Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly

$25/adults, $16/seniors & students, $10/ages 19 & under

The first museum exhibition devoted to late visionary artist and designer Virgil Abloh work spans two decades of the artist’s multidisciplinary practice, including collaborations with artist Takashi Murakami, musician Kanye West, and architect Rem Koolhaas, among others; material from his fashion label Off-White; and items from Louis Vuitton, where he served as the first Black menswear artistic director.

Includes never-before-seen objects from the artist’s archive, as well as a “social sculpture,” which draws upon Abloh’s background in architecture. The installation offers a space for gathering and performances, and is designed to counter the historical lack of space afforded to Black artists and Black people in cultural institutions.
