MOCA Unveils Face Mask Collaboration With Virgil Abloh, Yoko Ono And More
MOCA has unveiled a collaborative collection of artist-designed face masks with proceeds from each purchase directly supporting The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles during Covid-19 operations. Known as the MOCA Mask Collection, the nine limited-production, artist-designed face masks include work 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. Most of the masks are made from 100%, 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 mask features 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.
Exclusively partnering with K11 Musea in Hong Kong, the collection also includes a creation especially for K11 by artist Alex Israel, which features a sunset palette with a specially designed iconic artist portrait pin.
All nine of the new MOCA masks are available to purchase for US$28 each, or US$280 for the set of nine, plus a bonus mask on the official MOCA website. The masks can also be purchased through K11 eshop, priced at HKD 320 each.
