David Dawson, painter and longtime assistant and friend of Lucian Freud, shares personal insights and thoughts on his 20-year relationship with the brilliant and driven artist for this Tuesday Evenings at the Modern. Photographing Freud and his studio over the years, Dawson explained to the Guardian that his photographic documentation was an "honest record" of their relationship, commenting that working with Freud was "never a burden, but certainly a commitment."

Brooklyn-based artist KAWS (born Brian Donnelly) has received critical acclaim for the ease with which he straddles the commercial and fine art worlds. KAWS’s paintings, sculptures, prints, editioned toys, apparel, and other products deftly reference popular culture and the history of modern painting as they reflect the chaotic nature of contemporary life. KAWS has exhibited his work widely, and his piece Where the End Starts, 2011, was chosen for acquisition from the Modern’s Focus Show series last year.
