In NGV International's Federation Court stands an imposing sculpture in a solemn pietà pose. At seven metres tall, Gone (2019) by Kaws is the world-renowned Brooklyn-based artist's largest bronze sculpture to date. It's part of the gallery's Kaws: Companionship in the Age of Loneliness exhibition, which you'll be able to get up close and personal with on Saturday, February 22.

The gallery is hosting a one-off mass meditation right underneath the giant bronze sculpture. The morning will kick off at 9am with a meditation led by A-Space founder Manoj Dias — suitable for all levels of experience — which'll be accompanied by a live musical performance. After that, you'll get exclusive access to the exhibition from 9.45am.

Explore Kaws' vivid murals and distinctive, pop culture-inspired characters before the rest of the riff-raff are let in at 10am. You're probably familiar with the artist's reinterpretations of iconic figures like Mickey Mouse, Snoopy and The Smurfs, all reworked with those signature Xs over the eyes — and you'll get to see them all here.

Tickets will set you back $40, which includes meditation and access to the exhibition.
