It should come as no surprise that Rick Owens has decided to collaborate with another musical artist on a joint art project, albeit this time around it will be a full fledged exhibition with the Estonian rapper Tommy Cash. This comes on the heels of Owens recently contributing to Cash’s ¥€$ project and having featured Cash, and his music, in his SS19 Men’s show.
Titled, The Pure and the Damned, the exhibit will showcase Owens and Cash’s individual works alongside collaborative artwork exclusive to the show, employing a range of videos, audio, and physical works in multiple zones. It will be set as a juxtaposition of Owens’ monochromatic world against Cash’s more overtly colorful aesthetic bridged by their collaborative pieces highlighting the inherent overlap in their artistic approach.
The Pure and the Damned at Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn, Estonia opens May 3 through September 15, 2019
