Throughout NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago, the National Basketball Association will launch a multifaceted exhibition entitled “MOMENTUM” in collaboration with Franchise. The presentation will be divided into four segments including one that will be curated by Houston Rockets’ James Harden.
Harden was enlisted to curate a video-wall installation dubbed Tunnel Vision that chronicles both NBA and WNBA players in the midst of doing the iconic pre-game walk. Other highlights include an exhibit called “Beyond The Arc” that pays homage to All-Star weekend’s most notable moments through pairings of shoes and jerseys and a space dedicated to celebrating the dynasty of the Chicago Bulls.
Altogether, attendees will encounter archival ephemera from the NBA, video installations, and a curated group show of contemporary works. Exclusive merchandise will also be up for grabs at the event.“MOMENTUM” will run through February 14-16 at Chicago’s Navy Pier. Get a look inside the exhibition above and purchase tickets here starting at $20 USD.
In other collaborative installments, Futura 2000 recently unveiled his hand-painted BMW M vehicles at this year’s Frieze Los Angeles art fair.
