The ambidextrous Abloh has tried his hand at everything from furniture design to fashion. While he is most famous for his street-couture label Off-White, which turned tracksuits and high-tops into high fashion, he’s also a core part of Kanye West’s design team.
Binding them together is a rebellious creative vision shaped by the world around them. Opening during LFW AW18, Future History presents a mix-match of their artistic styles. Expect to find free-wheeling, punkish mash-ups, reflecting the world of culture today: think logos and graffiti mixed with Murakami's iconic anime characters. Lots of the work is ironic – disruption is its goal. Look out for Glance Past the Future where the 1623 self-portrait of Italian master-sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini is transformed into a graphic street poster.
This art is looking forward – an exhibition to take in whilst waltzing around Mayfair.
