At the upcoming Art Basel in Miami, Nike will host “Virgil Abloh: The Codes c/o Architecture,” a four-day event celebrating the life and work of the legendary designer. The program is set to run from December 1 to 4 at the Rubell Museum in Miami and is set to feature discussions, workshops, and exhibitions of the artist’s work.
The intention of the experience is to showcase how Virgil’s unique design principles can be applied to nearly any artistic endeavor. These design principles are the guiding light for Nike and Architecture, the team Abloh created to work on his collaborations with the Swoosh.
Alongside Nike, the Miami event is being held in conjunction with VA Securities, the creative corporation lead by his widow, Shannon Abloh.
“Virgil and Nike thrived together because he understood the brand’s role as a cornerstone of culture while Nike understood the importance of truly supporting creatives and their visions,” said Shannon, in a press release. “This beautiful four-day experience at Miami Art Week will honor their legacy together and champion both Virgil’s open-source methods and his genuine commitment to collaborating with and inspiring others.”
