The Andy Warhol Museum presents KAWS + Warhol, the first exhibition to examine the dark themes present in the work of both artists. From skulls to car crashes, both artists deploy their signature bright colours and pop culture references while also presenting the lurid spectacle of death. In response to Warhol, KAWS presents a series of paintings, sculptures and installations which feature the artist’s signature characters and imagery from America’s most loved cereal boxes. A monumental wooden sculpture is also on view in Pop Park, directly across from the museum.

The Parrish Art Museum presents TIME OFF, a major solo exhibition devoted to the sculptures and paintings of KAWS. Working in a wide range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, installation and product design, KAWS’ practice transgresses borders between ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture, questions the conventional hierarchies of the art world establishment, and seeks to democratise the way art is experienced for a new generation.
