For Abloh, the museum catalogue is another opportunity to "question everything." This special-edition monograph, produced in close collaboration with the artist himself, explores his creative output in a three-books-in-one format. The catalogue section offers an overview of Abloh's inter-disciplinary practice by Michael Darling and features essays and interviews with key voices in art, fashion, design, and architecture, including Taiye Selasi, Lou Stoppard, Michael Rock, Samir Bantal, Rem Koolhaas, and Anja Aronowsky Cronberg. In the archives section, more than 1800 never-before-seen images pulled from the artist's personal files reveal the remarkable breadth of his influences and collaborations. And the index cross references the catalogue plates-Abloh's works-with his projects and process, using a vocabulary of themes developed by Abloh. In addition to unique packaging, Abloh, founder of the fashion brand Off-WhiteTM and men's artistic director at Louis Vuitton, has created a unique recording, exclusively for this book.
