Yuz Museum's upcoming exhibition will not only be the largest KAWS’s exhibition in China, but also his first survey exhibition in Asia. Jointly organized by Yuz Museum and Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, “KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS” will feature his key paintings, sculptures, drawings, toys, and advertisement interventions to examine KAWS’s prolific career in depth, revealing critical aspects of his formal, conceptual, and collaborative developments over the last twenty years. Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’s bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times, as well as his agility as an artist. He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations to form his artistic vocabulary for his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Emotions and situations are reflected in his works, with which we empathize in presentations that are balanced with humor, heartening in their cartoon aesthetic. The exhibition period is from March 28th to August 13th, 2017.
