KAWS Announces Retail Collection for Upcoming Exhibition, Previews Pink 'GONE' Companion Figure

The collection will coincide with the artist’s show at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.

KAWS has just shared an image of a pink and grey version of his new ‘GONE’ companion vinyl figure, closely following the artist’s initial preview of a black version last month.

Both new figures will release on the occasion of KAWS’ upcoming exhibition “COMPANIONSHIP IN THE AGE OF LONELINESS” at National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. Along with the preview, KAWS also announced that he has collaborated with the gallery’s accompanying design store, NGV Design Store, to create a full retail collection that will drop on the exhibition’s opening day.

According to both KAWS and NGV Design Store, the collection will go live both online and in-store September 20 at 10 am Australian Eastern Standard Time. Besides the two new ‘GONE’ companion figures, the rest of the collection is still under wraps. Keep it locked here for more details as they arise.

KAWS also announced his upcoming “BLACKOUT” exhibition, which will happen in London this October.
