An exhibition of his work, which has been described as 'ultramodern' and 'genre-bending,' will highlight this Interdisciplinarity&nbsp;at the&nbsp;Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA), starting June 10th.

The exhibition will be curated by Samir Bantal, the director at AMO, OMA’s research wing. Bantal has expressed that the exhibition will focus on the different worlds Virgil moves in: Architecture, Fashion, Design, Music and Art. After the show’s opening, there are plans for it to travel internationally and become part of an ongoing collaboration between AMO and Abloh.
