KAWS: ALONE AGAIN opened at MOCAD this past Friday, May 10. The solo exhibition is organized by the Museum of the Contemporary Art Detroit’s Executive Director Elysia Borowy-Reeder, in close collaboration with the Brooklyn-based artist. Taking over the main exhibition space of the museum, the installation includes five sculptures, a site-specific wall work, and three paintings.
ALONE AGAIN plays on pop art, figuration, deconstruction, collage, and fashion, all while referencing our current cultural climate. The exhibition showcases KAWS’ abstract compositions through a colorful acrylic palette.
Joining KAWS: ALONE AGAIN at MOCAD this summer is the first US museum solo presentation of Bailey Scieszka, the Detroit museum premieres of Mary Helena Clark and Helina Metaferia, an exhibition of Eddie Martinez, and a new installation in Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead by Nicolas Lobo.
KAWS: ALONE AGAIN is open at MOCAD now through August 4.
