The Museum Of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles Unveils Face Masks By Virgil Abloh And Yoko Ono
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) has unveiled a collaborative collection of artist-designed face masks with proceeds from each purchase directly supporting the museum in Los Angeles during Covid-19 operations. Known as the MOCA Mask Collection, the nine limited-production, artist-designed face masks include works by Virgil Abloh, Mark Grotjahn, Alex Israel, Barbara Kruger, Yoko Ono, Catherine Opie, Pipilotti Rist, Hank Willis Thomas, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts.
Given the importance of wearing a mask to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the trendy masks were designed with comfort and ease of wear in mind. They feature one closed loop at the top, along with ties at the bottom that can be adjusted to fit most people over the age of 10. Crafted with two layers of fabric, the masks feature a pocket on the inside for adding your own filter to extra protection.
While all masks are thoughtfully designed and executed, stand out coverings include Yoko Ono’s mind bending A Piece of the Sky, Virgil Abloh’s blacked out Still Speaks Loudly, and Andy Warhol’s Flowers.
In partnership with Adrian Cheng, founder of K11 Group and CEO of New World Development the masks are now available in Asia Pacific. All nine of the new MOCA masks are available to purchase at shop.k11.com.
