Following the opening of ‘KAWS: He Eats Alone at the Fire Station’, Qatar Museums unveiled ‘Holiday,’ an installation by US born artist, Brian Donnelly – known as KAWS. The work, currently situated at the Dhow Harbour, is on display for the first time in the Middle East and joins Qatar’s growing portfolio of permanent and temporary public art pieces.
Not only is the KAWS: HE EATS ALONE is a must-see, KAWS HOLIDAY enjoying a relaxing lie down at the Dhow Harbour on the Corniche with the Doha skyline in the backdrop is also a must-see exhibition. People are flocking to get a view of this public art installation at all hours of the day and night. That's why it's on display till 20 November 2019.
HOLIDAY is an inflatable sculpture depicting KAWS’ character, COMPANION, in a laid-back position. The massive sculpture, measuring at a height of 40 meters, represents the artist’s attempt to remind spectators to relax in an increasingly hectic world. Much like the rest of KAWS’ body of work, the installation uses wit and drollness to provide a playful commentary on our humanity.
The KAWS HOLIDAY art installation will remain on display till 20 November 2019, while the KAWS: HE EATS ALONE exhibition at the Doha Fire Station is on display till 25 January 2020. Don't miss them!
