Enter Virgil Abloh and Ben Kelly's deconstructed nightclub installation Ruin



Summoning the spirit of the Hacienda.

Off-White creative director Virgil Abloh and designer Ben Kelly have collaborated on a new installation, Ruin, at Store Studios, piecing together fragments of abandoned nightclubs, iconic discos and cut-ups of dance music history.

Open to the public and free to visit, Ruin came alive as the host of Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey’s Dancefloor Meditations show for Frieze Music in October.

Take a trip into the space above and visit Virgil Abloh + Ben Kelly’s Ruin Tuesday – Saturday 12pm-7pm, and Sundays 12pm-6pm at Store Studios, 180 The Strand, London, WC2R 1EA, accessible from the entrance on Surrey Street.

Ruin is on show alongside Ryoji Ikeda’s test pattern no. 12 and Arthur Jafa’s Love Is The Message, The Message Is Death at Store Studios until 14th December. Click here for more info on how to visit.
