Wish ATL x Virgil VIP Night

Private Viewing of the “Figures Of Speech” Exhibit at the High Museum of Art

This past weekend we partnered with the High Museum of Art for a VIP preview of Virgil Abloh’s “Figures Of Speech” Exhibit. We brought out some of Atlanta’s most influential creatives and tastemakers for a private night at the High Museum, to view Virgil’s works before the exhibit opens to the public.


Virgil Abloh: “Figures of Speech” offers an unprecedented survey of Abloh’s creative work over nearly two decades and pulls back the curtain on his process. The exhibition presents prototypes alongside finished artworks, product designs, and fashion to reveal his myriad inspirations—from centuries-old paintings to commonplace construction signs. Running throughout the exhibition is an emphasis on dialogue, which Abloh creates through his inventive use of language and quotation marks, turning the objects he designs and the people who wear his clothing into “figures of speech.”


The works on view will offer an in-depth look at the defining highlights of Abloh’s career, including his recent designs for Louis Vuitton menswear collection, video documentation of his most iconic fashion shows, and his distinctive furniture and graphic design work.
