PAFA's first large-scale gallery intervention exhibition, highlighting the museum's tradition of commitment to contemporary artists who define the iconography of their times
The indoor component of KAWS @ PAFA featured over 60 KAWS paintings and sculptures — some of them newly created for this exhibition — in the galleries of the Historic Landmark Building. These works provided an intriguing link between contemporary and historic American art. KAWS @ PAFA was the first large-scale gallery intervention exhibition and highlighted PAFA’s long tradition of commitment to contemporary art and to artists who define the iconography of their times.
