Opening Ceremony T-shirts, totes display the art of Mike Kelley


Opening Ceremony has partnered with the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts to put some of the late artist’s work on a capsule collection of T-shirts and tote bags, the retailer announced Tuesday.

The retail rollout coincides with the Mike Kelley retrospective that opened at the Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art on March 31 (and runs through July 28) and includes six images taken from Kelley’s drawings and photographs printed on short-sleeve and long-sleeve T-shirts (available now) and tote bags (scheduled to drop soon).

The merchandise is being sold through Opening Ceremony’s website and bricks-and-mortar stores (including the West Hollywood boutique at 451 N. La Cienega Blvd. in West Hollywood) as well as the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA store (152 N. Central Ave., Los Angeles 90012).


The short-sleeve T-shirts retail for $40, and the long-sleeve tees will run you $50. The price for the not-yet-at-retail totes has not been announced. A portion of proceeds from sales of the items will support MOCA.
