For twenty-five years, Brooklyn-based artist KAWS (Brian Donnelly, American, born 1974) has bridged the worlds of art, popular culture, and commerce. Adapting the rules of cultural production and consumption in the twenty-first century, his practice both critiques and participates in consumer culture. Opening February 12, 2021, KAWS: WHAT PARTY presents a sweeping survey of KAWS career, tracing common themes in the artists’ practice as he has grown from his roots as a graffiti artist to a dominating force in the contemporary art world. Presenting more than one hundred broad-ranging works KAWS: WHAT PARTY features rarely seen graffiti drawings and notebooks, paintings, and sculptures, smaller collectibles, furniture, recent augmented reality projects, and monumental installations of his popular COMPANION figures.⠀
