Tomorrow Atlanta's High Museum of Art premieres a multi-site exhibition of work by KAWS. It features a 22-foot-high site-specific mural in the Margaretta Taylor Lobby of the Museum's Wieland Pavilion, as well as a 24-foot-long triptych hung in the Robinson Atrium. There will also be three new major works from KAWS, a grid of 27 round paintings, toys, and a collaboration with British photorapher David Sims.
KAWS’ Companion Passing Through (2010) sculpture was installed on November 18, 2011 in advance of the main exhibition opening on February 18. KAWS: DOWN TIME has been organized by the High’s Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Michael Rooks. It will be exhibited at the High Museum of Art from February 18, 2012 until May 20, 2012.
