Exhibition introduction 

The exhibition "the companionship of the lonely age of KAWS:" highlights the emotional content in the artist`s works. Through his work, KAWS expresses our generous support for others and our deep needs for our companions. KAWS represents people who spend most of their time working across the environment and working together, while his works represent antidotes or responses to the growing influence of public discourse social media and social differentiation within and outside society. He reminded us that we need each other and that life should be as enthusiastic as possible against this lonely age.


The companionship of the KAWS: Lonely Age will show viewers a large number of KAWS`s works of art, including a large sculpture commissioned by NGV (his largest bronze sculpture to date), paintings that reshape pop culture images, and an impressive range of human proportion sculptures. KAWS`s partnership with other artists and major brands, as well as his own products, will also be on display.
