This summer the Brooklyn Museum is launching a Virgil Abloh Exhibition. When designer, entrepreneur, and culture shifter Virgil Abloh passed away in November after a private battle with a rare form of cancer. The exhibition “Figures of Speech” will feature a mix of fashion, large sculptures, videos & sketches spanning Virgil’s two decades of his influential work in the fashion industry and beyond. This exhibit will serve as a rendition of the 2019 museum of contemporary art Chicago’s exhibit of the same name, which was the first dedicated display of Abloh’s work. The Brooklyn Museum’s tribute to the streetwear maverick was first announced in an Instagram post following the news of his passing.
