A few months ago, KAWS unveiled a beautiful public Companion (Passing Through) sculpture at Philadelphia's 30th Street Station, all leading up to the Brooklyn artist's exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts that opens tomorrow, October 11. A few images of the PAFA's space have been released, showing a great juxtaposition (hey-o!) of the clean, bright lines of KAWS' canvases with the antique, classic works and structure of the PAFA building. Living Proof has a great preview video ...From PAFA:
KAWS @ PAFA features both indoor and outdoor components. A new 9-foot KAWS sculpture will be installed on the pedestal above the front entrance of the Historic Landmark Building. Additionally, over 60 KAWS paintings and sculptures will be installed throughout the galleries of the Historic Landmark Building.
