Uncovering and identifying the true meaning of the saying, “Legends never die,” is the best way I can describe what it feels like to live through the after days of Virgil Abloh. Although the memory of his final days last November are still clear as day, it also feels like his presence never faded and his impact only continues to grow. While Louis Vuitton hosted their latest fashion shows, we saw his final designs for the French fashion house walk the runway and witnessed his global voice evolve into something even greater. There’s no question that Abloh had pushed an inclusive culture forward and inspired generations with his innovations several times, but it was also apparent that he was really just getting started.
In tribute, The Brooklyn Museum worked with renowned curator, Antwaun Sargent, to carry out a vision that Abloh planned to execute with Sargent before he passed. “Figures Of Speech” will be available to view at The Brooklyn Museum until January 29, 2023.
