In light of the coronavirus crisis, several galleries and museums across the globe are making their current programs available to peruse online. One of the recent institutions to jump on the digital initiative is the National Gallery of Victoria Melbourne, Australia. The museum announced this weekend that it has launched a virtual tour of its landmark “KAWS:COMPANIONSHIP IN THE AGE OF LONELINESS” exhibition.

The extensive presentation explores the artist’s diverse practice, spotlighting murals, large-scale sculptures, street, and public art, as well as original designs from his fashion collaborations. It’s split into four themes: “Public Interventions,” “Iconography,” “Order And Chaos,” and “Companionship.” The centerpiece of the show is a newly commissioned bronze sculpture of the artist’s signature Companion — his largest statue to date.

Visit NGV Melbourne’s website to take a virtual tour of KAWS’ exhibition that is on view until April 13, 2020.

In case you missed it, Perrotin launched its own series of virtual exhibitions including a behind-the-scenes look at Daniel Arsham’s “Paris, 3020” presentation.
