Curated by Italian art historian Germano Celant, the indoor and outdoor exhibition will host a familiar 18-foot-tall ALONG THE WAY figurine greeting visitors and debut the almost hugging companions.
“It is very exciting to see so many of my works gathered in one place and representing different phases and facets of my career,” quoted KAWS. “I have always wanted my art to connect with people – to have this opportunity to exhibit my works in the heart of Hong Kong’s bustling centre is great.”
