Virgil Abloh Shares Work in Progress for Upcoming Takashi Murakami Co-Exhibition

Opening February 20.

By //Arts

After teasing a series of handmade T-shirts, Virgil Abloh recently shared a work in progress for his upcoming Takashi Murakami co-exhibition.

Set to take place at Gagosian Gallery‘s Davies street London location, the collaborative exhibition will serve as a mashup of fashion and art. Drawing from the signature elements found in Virgil’s Off-White™ label and Murakami’s iconic art career, the launch of the exhibition will surely become a highly talked-about event.

In the work in progress clip posted on Virgil’s Instagram, a large-scale Off-White™ square arrow emblazoned with Murakami graphics is seen being worked on. Utilizing screen printing, the two members of Murakami’s artist team show off the streetwear technique that has served as a point of fusion for the upcoming art exhibition.

Check out the work in progress for Virgil Abloh and Takashi Murakami’s Gagosian Gallery exhibition taking place February 20.
