Following its exciting global tour in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Outer Space, and the United Kingdom, this marks the seventh stop for KAWS’ HOLIDAY, as part of its goal to promote public appreciation of the arts. Supported by Singapore Tourism Board, the marks KAWS’ first trip to the Lion City.
