Currently taking place at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, take a look at Virgil Abloh’s “Figures Of Speech” installation…
Includes architecture from OMA*AMO, this immersive experience provides insight into both Abloh’s creative process and his career development. It also includes iconic statement pieces like the tongue-in-cheek black rug from his Off-White showroom in Paris, bearing the disdainful comment a critic once made about Abloh: ““It’s highly possible that Pyrex simply bought a bunch of Rugby flannels, slapped ‘PYREX 23’ on the back, and resold them for an astonishing mark-up of 700%.”
Check out the images from the exhibition below, which includes his early brand PYREX 23, his shoe collaborations with Nike, plus screenshots from his FaceTime calls and cutouts of Sheck Wes, Gigi and more.
