In February 2012, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta opened the highly anticipated exhibiton KAWS: DOWN TIME. The exhibition featured a 22-foot-high, site-specific mural painted in the Margaretta Taylor Lobby of the High’s Wieland Pavilion and a 24-foot-long triptych hung in the Museum’s Robinson Atrium. In addition, the exhibition included three new major works including a grid of 27 round paintings, a group of KAWS toys, drawings, and a collaborative project with British Photographer David Sims.
The exhibition also included KAWS’s monumental sculpture Companion(2010), which was installed on November 18, 2011 on the Museum’s piazza, in advance of the main exhibition opening in February.
