Kaws "Final Days" @ CAC Málaga, Spain

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 03, 2014
The Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga is presenting the first solo exhibition in a Spanish museum of KAWS, entitled FINAL DAYS. Curated by Fernando Francés, it includes five large-scale, carved wooden sculptures of his celebrated COMPANION, among other figures. In their numerous different versions, they represent the work for which KAWS, who is also a forerunner of the Art & Toys movement, is internationally known.

"If You’re Accidentally Not included, Don’t Worry About It" curated by Peter Saul @ Zurcher Studio, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 03, 2014
This show ought to be a good one in NYC, considering the names involved and the curating eye of Peter Saul. Here is the lowdown: Zürcher Studio is pleased to announce "If You’re Accidentally Not included, Don’t Worry About It," a group show curated by Peter Saul. Among the artists who attract the interests of other artists (particularly from the newest generation), Peter Saul is one of the most magnetizing. Bernard and Gwenolee Zürcher proposed to him the idea of a group show based on his own artistic choices.

KAWS "Play Your Part" @ Galeria Javier Lopez, Madrid

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 20, 2014
KAWS had a pretty amazing year in 2013, and the Brooklyn artist is right back at it in 2014 with "Play Your Part," an exhibition at Madrid's Galeria Javier Lopez. We have long been fans of the program at Javier Lopez, with Todd James, Kaws, Jenny Holzer, and Leo Villareal on the roster, and love how KAWS' work looks in the sparse space. If you are in Spain through April 23, go check it out.

KAWS' Art on Candice Swanepoel for iD Magazine

Erotica // Tuesday, November 26, 2013
KAWS is everywhere at the moment. Museum show in Philadelphia, two major exhibitions in NYC, and now the Brooklyn-based artist has lent his artwork to the cover of iD Magazine and their story on Supreme, KAWS, and how the super-but-not-super-big brand Supreme has conquered a portion of the fashion world. And model Candice Swaneepoel is the benefactor of KAWS art and some cleverly placed Supreme decks...

KAWS @ Mary Boone + Galerie Perrotin, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
If the year of KAWS hasn't gone well already for the Brooklyn-based artist, he will be opening concurrent exhibitions at Mary Boone Gallery and Galerie Perrotin's new NYC space this weekend, November 2, 2013. Some people would like to have one show. Some people think two would be nice. Some would like just one show in NYC. One in Chelsea? Even better? How about two shows at Mary Boone and Galerie Perrotin, at the same time? On the same day? That is a lot of champagne.  Oh, and he has a museum show in Philly right now. There's that trifecta we were looking for!

Video: KAWS @ Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
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 ...

KAWS & REAS Have Big Things in store at MTV VMAs?

Music // Friday, August 23, 2013
Well, obviously KAWS has big things in store this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards, airing this Sunday, August 25 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. We knew he had redesigned the iconic Moonman statue for the award show, and because we like to scour Instagram, we have seen a 60' foot KAWS designed Moonman that will be right in the heart of the Barclays Center during the show. But now we see some updates regarding the great Todd "REAS" James, some bears, and Miley Cyrus. We may actually watch this one.

Kaws Reimagines Iconic MTV Video Music Awards' Moonman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Kaws is no stranger to embedding himself in popular culture, albeit through his own lens and artistic style. The NYC-based artist has seen his work in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, on Kanye West albums, and other fashion house identities. Recently, the artist was tasked with the project to reimagine the iconic MTV Moonman statue, given out to winners at the Video Music Awards. Seeing that the MTV VMA's used to be the standard bearer of all things Generation X, or Y, or whatever, where you got to see Nirvana call out Guns N' Roses while the adults watched Phil Collins take home another Grammy, we think this is a great project to take on.

Opening: KAWS "OHHH..." @ KAIKAI KIKI, TOKYO

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
Let's face it. Chances are you didin't make it to Tokyo for the opening of KAWS' new exhibition, Ohhh..., at Murakami's Kaikai Kiki space. It opened tonight, but in Tokyo time, that means its already open. So, if you didn't make it, we have a little into some of the works that are on exhibit, and as you can see, they are some of the cleanest, bold acrylic works you will ever see.
