In the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA)'s exhibition, titled Figures of Speech, the focus will be on Abloh's creative process and collaborative work, notably in the realms of fashion, furniture and graphic design.

Abloh's approach to fashion takes inspiration from contemporary art, his architectural training and the world of music and celebrates the ethos of street style—including that of Chicago—in which, as the museum says, "high culture is appropriated, sometimes corrupted, and served up as something fresh and new."

A number of Abloh's signature collections will be on view, with video documentation showcasing his most iconic shows; those works will be shown alongside his collections of furniture and graphic design work, along with his collaborative projects with artists including Jenny Holzer, Arthur Jafa and John Baldessari.

At the MCA, the exhibition will be presented from June 10 to September 22, 2019. Tickets for the show will go on sale on November 1 at 10am Chicago time via www.mcachicago.org.

According to the museum, Figures of Speech will then travel to select venues both nationally and internationally, although details have yet to be announced.
