Virgil abloh is unveiling a new art installation in milan

by MR Magazine Staff

Founded by Carhartt WIP and Slam Jam, Spazio Maiocchi is a new art-design-fashion space in Milan aiming to “shape new cultural experiences”. Which makes it the perfect place to play host to the work of Virgil Abloh, a similarly boundary-crossing figure, whose work relentlessly shapes new cultural experiences. A trained architect, Virgil is most famous for his work as a fashion designer, with his own label Off-White, and as Creative Director of menswear at Louis Vuitton. On top of that he’s also a DJ and an artist. His latest project sees him collaborate with Milanese art magazine Kaleidoscope for their autumn/winter issue, which will debut at Spazio Maiocchi on November 30. Virgil will be presenting a special edition of Kaleidoscope’s new issue, which will include a T-shirt and signed artwork, as well as an installation and billboard commission. He’ll also unveil a manifesto for “streetwear as the next global art movement” — proposing the youth fashion movement as “a way of making across disciplines, and ultimately a new Renaissance breaking the barrier between high culture and real life.” Read more at i-D.
