Brian Donnelly AKA “KAWS” will have a gallery exhibit of his entire 20-year career on display at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The title of the event is called “Where the End Starts”. There’s also a monograph hardcover that was made to support the exhibit.
In the photo above the infamous Pharrell Williams went on Instagram to show off the upcoming version of the Sesame Street Muppet-inspired “BFF” plush made for the exhibit. It’s very similar to the original version just with a change in color as the original was a parody of Cookie Monster with blue fur and yellow nose and the BFF with black “fur’ and pink nose. These pieces stand at 20-inch tall and there will only be a limit amount available.
HipHop and toys!! 😉
About the “Where The End Starts” Exhibit:
“The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth hosts a major survey exhibition of the work of Brooklyn-based artist KAWS (American, born 1974) on view in Fort Worth, Texas, October 20, 2016 through January 22, 2017, and traveling to the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, China, March through August 2017. Organized by Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth curator Andrea Karnes in close collaboration with the artist, this presentation features key paintings, sculptures, drawings, toys, and street art interventions to examine KAWS’s prolific career in depth, revealing critical aspects of his formal, conceptual, and collaborative developments over the last twenty years.” ~themodern.org
