Singapore is getting a new Companion.
Beginning next month, KAWS: HOLIDAY will touch down in the Lion City as part of its world tour to promote public appreciation for the arts. The 42-meter-long sculpture shows the KAWS Companion lying on its back and staring up at the sky while a smaller Companion rests in its arms.
The event, organized in partnership with AllRightsReserved and the Singapore Tourism Board, marks KAWS: HOLIDAY’s seventh stop since 2018, following tours in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Outer Space, and most recently the United Kingdom.
“At a time when international travel may be challenging for many, I am thankful for the opportunity through the ongoing HOLIDAY project to bring art experiences to different localities,” KAWS said in a statement, “and am excited to come to Singapore for the first time.”
KAWS: HOLIDAY will be on display from Nov. 13-21 at The Float @ Marina Bay. The installment will mark the last major event at the venue for 2021, as it will begin its redevelopment phase during the first quarter of 2022.
In support of KAWS: HOLIDAY’s Singapore stop, the American artist will release a batch of limited-edition collectibles, including Companion figures, camping sets, tank tops, and hand fans—all of which will be exclusively available at 10 p.m. EST, Nov. 12 at DDTStore.com. The items are expected to ship in December.
