The Andy Warhol Museum is bringing together the work of Andy Warhol and KAWS for an exhibition exploring the “dark themes” of their work.

The Brooklyn-based KAWS is known for bright-colored sculptures and paintings featuring his signature skull characters. The late Warhol similarly used vibrant color palettes in his own, which famously probed commercialism and advertising but also frequently explored the concept of death.

With the debut joint exhibition of the two artists, KAWS + Warhol, “the dark undercurrents in the work of KAWS and Warhol are magnified and brought into plain sight by presenting the two artists together for the first time,” the museum says.

Along with KAWS’ past work, the artist has also created new works responding to Warhol’s themes of commercialism, spanning paintings, sculptures and installations. A wooden sculpture from KAWS will stand in The Warhol’s new Pop Park space, located across from the museum.

The exhibit will also feature his recent General Mills commission – showcasing his characters on cereal boxes – alongside Warhol’s ‘60s ​​Brillo Boxes.

KAWS + Warhol will open at The Warhol on May 18 and runs until January 20, 2025.
