KAWS: Where the end starts

Now - January 22, 2017

A major survey exhibition of the work of Brooklyn-based artist KAWS organized by Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth curator Andrea Karnes in close collaboration with the artist. It features key paintings, sculptures, drawings, toys and street art interventions. The exhibition examines KAWS’s prolific career in depth, revealing critical aspects of his formal, conceptual, and collaborative developments over the last twenty years.

Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’s bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times, as well as his agility as an artist. Now well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters, with similarities to popular cartoon figures and logos like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man, are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity. 

On view in Fort Worth, Texas, October 20, 2016 through January 22, 2017, and traveling to the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, China, March through August 2017.
