Kaws: New Fiction is at Serpentine North Gallery, online and Fortnite (to Feb 27, 2022),

To access this online gallery space, players have to download Fortnite onto a PC, PlayStation, Xbox or Android mobile for free and create an account.

Kaws seems like the perfect choice. His street art-inspired forms hint at urban edginess, but with little of the raw authenticity of Basquiat. His orange Mickey Mouse figure (or is it the Michelin Man?) drips with uneasy irony; the friendly Disney icon is faceless and mute, but still Instagrammable.
