Jenny Holzer x Virgil Abloh "Abuse of Power Comes As No Surprise" T-Shirts For Planned Parenthood Los Angeles
In the wake of a post-Weinstein news cycle, one rallying cry unified our communal social media streams and encapsulated the collective consciousness: “Abuse of Power Comes As No Surprise.”
Part of neo-conceptual artist Jenny Holzer’s Truisms series featuring maxims beginning in 1977, the slogan is enjoying a resurgence in popularity.
Starting today, you can wear your heart and the infamous Truism on your sleeve with a limited-edition run of t-shirts benefitting Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. The iconic phrase is replicated on the front of the tee; in Russian, English, Japanese and Arabic on the sleeves; along with information about Planned Parenthood.
Fashion powerhouse Virgil Abloh—of the Milan-based fashion label Off-White—designed the t-shirts, having collaborated with Holzer earlier this year for Off-White’s spring/summer '18 show.
Available for a $100 donation, the shirts were commissioned by Sexy Beast, an art community that hosts events and collaborations to fundraise for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles.
