AFROPUNK Brooklyn Museum Ticket Bundle
AFROPUNK announces its new partnership with The Brooklyn Museum for the AFROPUNK/Virgil Abloh: “Figures Of Speech” ticket bundle. This bundle will allow fans to access both the festival and exhibit at a discounted cost not available anywhere else. Bundle purchasers will be able to purchase anyday/anytime tickets to the exhibit, while current festival ticket holders can use the discount code BrooklynBaby to purchase timed tickets.
The late visionary artist and designer Virgil Abloh has reshaped how we understand the role of fashion, art, design, and music in contemporary culture. Virgil Abloh: “Figures of Speech” is the first museum exhibition devoted to Abloh’s work and spans two decades of his practice. Newly added for the Brooklyn Museum’s presentation are never-before-seen objects from the artist’s archive, as well as a “social sculpture,” which draws upon Abloh’s background in architecture. Exhibition is on view now through January 29, 2023.
