‘KAWS:HOLIDAY’ Arrives at Indonesia’s Ancient Prambanan Temple Compound

Following recent news confirming that the KAWS:Holiday series making Indonesia its 10th stop, AllRightsReserved and AKG Entertainment have finally unveiled official images of the monumental exhibit lying beside the wondrous 9th-century Prambanan temples.

Nestled in the historic city of Yogyakarta in southern Java, Prambanan is Indonesia’s largest Hindu temple complex and a valuable UNESCO World Heritage Site. With the unveiling of KAWS:Holiday, KAWS offers a refreshing experience for visitors by pairing contemporary art with ancient architecture.

This is also the first time in the 6-year-long tour for KAWS to feature the “ACCOMPLICE,” a design that was initially released in 2002 as a vinyl figure. Stretching 45 meters long, the bunny-like “ACCOMPLICE” now also sets the record as the artist’s largest sculpture to date.

“I am honored to have my sculpture on display in Indonesia, where it can be enjoyed by the public and become a part of the vibrant cultural landscape of the country. Art has the power to bring people together and inspire meaningful connections, and I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to that through my work,” said KAWS.

The KAWS:Holiday Indonesia edition will be on view from August 19 – 31, 2023.
