On March 12, Acute Art joined forces with KAWS to launch their collaborative, augmented reality project entitled EXPANDED HOLIDAY. The joint effort consisted of a free exhibition of 12 monumental AR sculptures in international locations and open editions of limited AR works featuring the artist’s signature Companion character. All of the works are visible via the Acute Art app. KAWS now releases a time-limited work titled COMPANION (EXPANDED).
“Given the current situation with COVID-19 we do not encourage the gathering of people, but instead, propose that you enjoy this small version of COMPANION (EXPANDED) for free in the comfort of your own space,” said KAWS in a statement. “I am completely overwhelmed and thankful for the way my project has been embraced and love seeing all the photos being uploaded so please keep them coming. THANK YOU!! Stay Safe!”
COMPANION (EXPANDED) is free of charge until April 15. Download the Acute Art app here.

Acute app update: We have updated the Acute Art app to include a free trial sculpture. For the last several months we have been working towards the release of this app and really looking forward to having AR sculptures placed globally where we can invite people to experience and view them for free through our app. Given the current situation with COVID-19 we do not encourage the gathering of people at these locations but rather you enjoy this small version of COMPANION (EXPANDED) for a free trial in the comfort of your own space. Acute Art and I are completely overwhelmed and thankful for the way this project has been embraced and we love seeing all the photos being uploaded so please keep them coming… THANK YOU!! STAY SAFE!!
