Kaws work has been everywhere, and influencing everyone, over the last few years. Now, its time for his first solo museum exhibition, which you can visit at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT.
The exhibition will serve as a career retrospective, spanning the years from his street art appropriations to his product lines and designs of the recent past, as he has helped pioneer the concept of adult toys as mini-sculptures now so prominent in Japan and among streetwear aficionados. The show also features Kaws art heretofore unseen. This all comes on the heels of Kaws recent feature in Interview, where the artist spoke with friend and fan Tobey Maguire. And who better than Spiderman to appreciate a culture-definer who has such a strong eye for pop iconography?
