Virgil Abloh and Takashi Murakami launched their anticipated “Future History” exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery in London, England. Any fans avidly following the duo on social media in the past few weeks have seen a slew of work-in-progress pieces. Now, we get a first look at the show, comprised of large-scale paintings, sculptures and an installation that draws references to signature Off-White™ motifs alongside Murakami’s iconic cast of anime characters.
Noteworthy works include: a metallic flower sculpture with Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki character on the top portion and Abloh’s cross arrows as the foundation; a triptych with Mr. DOB as the focal point of the vibrant montage; a pair of paintings embellished with yellow Off-White™ branding and a spray-painted “O” as well as “HOLLOW” lettering on each one; all black Flowers sculptures, and a glass house installation completely covered with black spray-paint and “LIFE ITSELF” on one side panel in white.
