Acute Art Presents EXPANDED HOLIDAY: KAWS LAUNCHES NEW ART FORM

Its time to enjoy KAWS art in a different form! Acute Art announces the worldwide launch of a new type of artwork by KAWS, one of today’s most celebrated artists. His augmented reality (AR) works to create new ways to own, trade, and live with art via the Acute Art app.

In collaboration with Acute Art, KAWS has produced EXPANDED HOLIDAY, which will demonstrate the enormous potential of AR and convey a sense of mischievous humour through the juxtaposition of physical and virtual worlds. This global launch consists of three components: a public exhibition and two editions.

– COMPANION (EXPANDED), 12 monumental AR sculptures, forms a global public exhibition that will be made available for audiences in major cities and locations in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Middle East, North America, and South America. Using cutting-edge technology, this project represents a new exhibition model that reduces transportation and travel for a global art world. The exhibition will run for two weeks, from the 12th March until the 26th of March.

– COMPANION (EXPANDED), an edition of 25 AR sculptures (1.8 m), is available to acquire via the Acute Art website. Owners will be able to place, capture, and document these AR works at different locations using the Acute Art app. Owners can keep the AR sculptures private or make them publicly available for anyone who has downloaded the app.

– AT THIS TIME (EXPANDED), an open edition, consists of AR sculptures (45 cm) in three colourways for time-based acquisition, available via the Acute Art app. Audiences can keep the sculptures for a limited time period and share their experiences through social media.

KAWS, artist, comments:
“When I realized the quality that could be achieved and experienced in AR, I was immediately drawn to its potential.
I have been creating objects and exhibiting works in public spaces throughout my career, and this allows me to expand on that in a whole new arena. The possibilities of locations and scale are endless, and I’m excited to start a
new dialogue in this medium.”


Jacob De Geer, CEO, Acute Art comments:
“Acute Art will revolutionize the way AR art can be experienced. KAWS, an artist with an unparalleled global fan base, is the perfect artist to launch the Acute Art app. His editions will demonstrate that works of art in virtual space can be just as precious and sought-after as those in our physical surroundings. In fact, they are even more exciting when shared with audiences across the globe on social media. For collectors, this means their art can travel with them in their pocket wherever they go. These prized artworks can be enjoyed and traded globally with the push of a button.”

Daniel Birnbaum, Artistic Director, Acute Art comments:
“The emergence of a new medium always gives rise to new possibilities for art. Each epoch seems to have its key artists in whose work a novel encounter between technology and artistic creativity crystallizes. Today’s immersive media create entirely new possibilities for the production and distribution of art and the arrival of AR can even be said to give rise to a new immaterial art form. With this project, KAWS breaks new ground but also returns to his beginnings. With roots in public interventions as well as late emanations of Pop Art, KAWS has created new global audiences. There is no artist more talked about today than KAWS.”
