Ok, from the beginning;
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is hosting a an exhibition of the work our beloved artist KAWS curated by Andrea Karnes in close collaboration with the man himself,from October 20, 2016 through January 22, 2017, and then traveling to the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, China, March through August 2017.
It is to expect a major exhibition with “key paintings, sculptures, drawings, toys, and street art interventions”, basically a retrospective of KAWS’s work over the last twenty years.
From what we can tell from the Instagram posts a new black version of the recent BFF plush toy is already on Pharrell’s hands. Does that mean a new drop? We can only hope. But the real question here is ‘will we get a new KAWS figure?’
A recent Instagram post by the man himself reveals what appear to be the famous Dissected Companion figure wrapped in some kind of ‘see through’ package ready to be released;
The real hope here is the hashtag OpenEdition. We speculate that a re-run of the 8″ Dissected Companion is happening. So rejoice collector and art lovers, bootleggers/fake dealers mourn.
This can be a game changer in the current parallel market thing, above all we all could use some KAWS action on our collections don’t you think?
Meanwhile pre-orders for KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS exhibition book are now open. With contributions from Andrea Karnes, Michael Auping, Dieter Buchhart, and Pharrell Williams, a hardcover edition with more than 150 color reproductions.
