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.
