Born in Rockford, Illinois U.S.A. in 1980 – Virgil Abloh is an artist, architect, and fashion designer.
After earning a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he completed a Master’s degree in Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
It was here at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he was introduced to a curriculum, originally established by Mies van der Rohe. A curriculum which was formed from the notions of Bauhaus, that enabled Virgil Abloh to learn how to converge the fields of arts, craft, and design.
Those notions merged with contemporary culture make up his inter-disciplinary practice today; stemming from his last 15 years, which is summarized below.

Lecture in Chicago with Hamza Walker for 3rd year Master of Fine Arts course at the Art Institute Chicago. Topics centered around the mode of art production irrelevant to final space. Drawing lines from Detroit Techno to Miles Davis and Travis Scott, while using my exhibition titled “Figures of Speech” as the backdrop for the discussion.

In large part, “Figures of Speech” is an art exhibition rooted in advertising and “the projected image”.   ⁣⁣⁣Anytime an idea hits a particular surface; a photo print, a screen, a billboard or canvas, it seems like fact. This exhibition demonstrates myself wrestling with this concept within the freedom of mediums while finding personal solutions.⁣⁣⁣⁣   This 15-year study is looking for a way to transform from consumer to producer. This is an intersection where the tourists and purists cross paths. The atmosphere is literal and figurative.⁣⁣⁣⁣ -Virgil Abloh⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ various exhibition views series ~ exhibition book and catalog link in bio.⁣ ⁣ “Figures of Speech” @mcachicago. ⁣⁣⁣ open to the public June 10th ©2019
