PRODUCT: MCA Museum League Scarf
SIZE: 78" long x 8" wide
MATERIALS: Acrylic
DESIGNER: Maurizio Cattelan
An MCA exclusive! Museum League scarves are designed by Maurizio Cattelan and produced by the Italian design brand Seletti. The idea comes from the fact that museums are increasingly becoming meeting spaces for art lovers: contemporary art institutions are now reference points for communities, just like soccer teams. Colors are perfectly matched, and so are the names of the institutions and the “museum chants,” one for each scarf, all created according to the museums’ DNA and coordinated images. The result is a striking remaking of the traditional soccer scarf.

In addition to the MCA, many international museums have already agreed to be part of this project. The idea is to build a growing league of museums which could potentially involve all the international players in the contemporary art world. The scarves are an homage to all contemporary art fans, who will finally be able to declare their love for their favorite museums with real soccer scarves.

Designer Maurizio Cattelan says, “Inspired by Joseph Beuys’ quote ‘everybody can be an artist’ I like to think that everyone can be a collector.”
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
