37-Meter-Long KAWS: HOLIDAY to Land in Hong Kong During Arts Month This March

The 37-meter-long KAWS: HOLIDAY is coming to Hong Kong, following its previous stops in Taipei and Seoul. It will be set up in Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, near the Central Harbourfront, from 22 to 31 March 2019.




The Asia tour for the inflatable version of American street artist KAWS’ iconic character Companion kicked off last year with the first two stops in the Seokchon Lake in Seoul, and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taipei.




The upcoming viewing in Hong Kong marks its third stop of the Asia tour. Measuring 37-meter-long, the inflatable sculpture in a relaxed, reclined position to be featured in the Hong Kong stop is the largest sculptural endeavour by KAWS to date, bigger than the 28-meter-long one in Seoul and the 36-meter-long one in Taipei.

Like its previous stops in Seoul and Taipei, the exhibition will present exclusive merchandise for the Hong Kong stop. Limited-edition collectibles include T-shirt, tote bag, cushion and a 170cm floating bed.  

"Hong Kong Stop” floating bed|HK$950

"Hong Kong Stop” bath toy|HK$1,200

"Hong Kong Stop” T-shirt|HK$390

"Hong Kong Stop” tote bag|HK$390

The event coincides with a series of exciting line-up for the Arts Month in Hong Kong this March. Other amazing events for KAWS super fan include KAWS: ALONG THE WAY in PMQ Central, which brings a rich array of sculptures, paintings, furniture and design figures. The solo show will be held from 29 March to 1 April 2019.

Concurrently, Sotheby’s Hong Kong teams up with Japanese entrepreneur NIGO to present over 30 artworks and collectibles from his personal collection including artworks by KAWS.
