Last month, COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT released its collaborative capsule collection with Futura. The assemblage featured 12 pieces covered in the world-famous graffiti artist’s recognizable, spray-paint motifs. This time around, Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art is releasing a special edition poster depicting one of Futura’s original designs from the Fall/Winter 20 apparel collaboration albeit not an official partnership with COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT.

Futura is also set to participate in a virtual studio visit on Instagram Live hosted by MCA Chicago on September 18. Those tuning in will get an up-close look at the artist’s practice, techniques and possibly unseen works. The exclusive poster featuring his SPORTS IN SPACE WITH AIR FORCE BLUE artwork as well as items from the capsule will release on MCA Chicago’s online store.

Each piece in the capsule is adorned with vivid graffiti that is synonymous with Futura’s abstract-meets-figurative style. A total of three prints are found in collection with all of these pieces reinterpreted by CdG founder Rei Kawakubo through applying prints, paneling, and cutouts, which give each piece a multi-layered and collage-like aesthetic.

Check out the poster above and visit MCA Chicago’s website for more details on Futura’s upcoming virtual studio session.

Elsewhere in art, Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe’s portrait of Lil Nas X is hitting the auction block at Phillips with a presale estimate of $50,000 USD.
