Celebrating the opening of Virgil Abloh: "Figures of Speech"

Chicago's most anticipated gala builds on the MCA's legacy of unforgettable events dedicated to honoring contemporary art and the creative process. We continue this tradition again this year, celebrating Virgil Abloh, multidisciplinary artist and men's artistic director of Louis Vuitton. Join us for the first look at the MCA exhibition Virgil Abloh: "Figures of Speech", curated by James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator Michael Darling. Guests will enjoy a lavish cocktail reception and a one-of-a-kind dining experience in our transformed garage, followed by a live musical performance by Dev Hynes.
