KAWS: PLAYTIME

National Gallery of Victoria, 180 St Kilda Road, Southbank, Victoria, 3006
Until 13 Apr 2020

This dedicated playful kids exhibition created by the New York artist known as KAWS introduces promising young artists of today to his creative approach and artistic methods of integrating pop culture into his work.

Starring KAWS’s character BFF, KAWS: PLAYTIME is a rich sensory experience welcoming kids and families into BFF’s world. Young visitors are invited to nestle into cosy nooks, explore and play.

KAWS’s sculptures of his characters are filled with human feeling and emotion such as loneliness and embarrassment. For young visitors, this touchscreen interactive featuring BFF tells a tale about feelings and the importance of friends and asks children to draw a friend for BFF. Finished drawings can then be shared with friends and family.

PLAYTIME continues when young visitors receive their own kit containing a pop-up surprise and a special set of alphabet stickers drawn by KAWS. Play is known as children’s work and this activity of playing with letters and spelling new words is the two rolled into one. Children can take their kit home and display proudly in their room.
