From the 6th of February until the 12th of June 2016, Yorkshire Sculpture Park will be hosting the first UK museum exhibition by KAWS. The show will include new large, bright, graphic canvases at their expansive Longside Gallery and a series of monumental companion sculptures which will be exhibited around the historically designed landscape of YSP.
The NYC-based artist recently visited a factory in Maastricht, The Netherlands, where his towering wooden sculptures are being produced. Teaser shots from his Instagram look very promising so this might be the right time for fans to start planning their trip to UK. On the opening day of his new exhibition, KAWS will discuss his work, influences and first UK museum show with YSP’s Director of Programme, Clare Lilley.
