The brilliant work of Rick Owens is to be the subject of an exhibit at the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn, Estonia, opening on Friday, May 3.
The Pure and the Damned, a collaborative exhibition between Owens and Tallinn-born artist Tommy Cash, is showcasing the artists’ respective works, as well as their collaboration artworks for the show. Though the artists dabble in different mediums, their works share similar subjects.
This isn’t the first time these two artisans have gotten teamed as Owens served as a guest artist on Cash’s ¥€$ project. And to cross-pollinate, the designer opened his Spring 2019 menswear show with an instrumental version of Cash’s track “Pussy Money Weed.”
Cash, who likely represents the ‘pure’, produces colorful works that incorporate pop culture, body images, and fluidity, the latter two in which mirror Owens’ focus and approach to fashion design. Curator Kati Ilves best captures Owens through a selection of monochromatic furniture, clothing, objects and runway videos that would best represent the ‘damned’.
