Making its seventh stop here as the artist’s first-ever monumental sculpture in an embrace
This 13 November, Singapore’s distinct skyline will see a unique addition as KAWS:HOLIDAY touches down for its seventh stop. Working with longtime collaborator AllRightsReserved and supported by Singapore Tourism Board, the internationally-celebrated artist, KAWS will be unveiling a colossal 42m-long artwork depicting his signature character, COMPANION, in a reclined position embracing a miniature version of itself.
Since 2018, KAWS’ HOLIDAY has toured Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Outer Space, and the United Kingdom. As part of HOLIDAY’s goal to promote public appreciation of the arts, and fresh from its flight in the skies of the English countryside, the widely acclaimed KAWS:HOLIDAY will be bringing the global phenomenon to the Lion City, Singapore. Having amassed a significant fanbase on the little red dot, KAWS invites all to witness his beloved characters on a monumental scale.
From 13 - 21November 2021,KAWS:HOLIDAY SINGAPORE will be on display atthe iconic The Float @ Marina Bay, where it will open to the public from 14 November. KAWS shared, “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, and am excited to come to Singapore for the first time.”
KAWS:HOLIDAY SINGAPORE will mark the last monumental event for The Float @ Marina Bay, a favoured choice for many significant national events over the past few years. With plans for its redevelopment set to begin in March 2022, this makes the KAWS:HOLIDAY stop one for the history books.
