FROM THE MCA:
The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA) presents Virgil Abloh: "Figures of Speech," the first-ever museum exhibition devoted to the work of the ultramodern, genre-bending artist and designer Virgil Abloh. Raised in Chicago by parents who emigrated from Ghana, Abloh was trained in engineering and architecture but cultivated an interest in music, fashion, and design.
THE FASHION MAP is featuring some of our favorite fashion exhibitions happening around the world this summer.

I had the opportunity to attend the Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism exhibition at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tennessee on opening day, May 24th, 2019. The photographs and paintings are from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and the exhibition was curated by Trinita Kennedy. The exhibition was organized by the Vergel Foundation and MondoMostre in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura (INBAL).
I had the pleasure of viewing the Chicago History Museum's current costume collection exhibition with a private curatorial tour hosted by Nena Ivon and led by curator Virginia Heaven. The tour was part of Retrospect Vintage Chicago's weekend from May 2 through May 5.
Retrospect Chicago was a 4-day weekend event featuring 50 of the country's top vintage fashion vendors.
