KAWS “Down Time” Exhibition @ High Museum of Art
The High Museum of Art will premiere a major multi-site exhibition of work by Brooklyn-based artist Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS on February 18, 2012 with a 22-foot-high, site-specific mural painted in the Margaretta Taylor Lobby of the High’s Wieland Pavilion, along with a 24-foot-long triptych hung in the Museum’s Robinson Atrium. In addition, a gallery installation of paintings, drawings and sculpture will feature a grid of 27 tondo paintings, each 40 inches in diameter. Visitors will be able to watch KAWS over the course of a week in early February as he creates the mural exclusively for the High. The exhibition will also include KAWS’s monumental sculpture Companion (2010), which will be installed on the Museum’s piazza on November 18, 2011, in advance of the main exhibition opening in February.
