Just in case you missed the amazing Jeff Koons exhibit at the Whitney museum in NYC – here is a bit of it. I had the opportunity to see this exhibit. I waited in line in the rain. They told me there was no good time to go and that the museum experienced a line to get in the entire 4 mos Koons work was showing.
Jeff Koons is regarded as one of the most important, influential, popular, and controversial artists. You will see what I mean as you scroll. This (I would say) is his most iconic piece. Balloon Dog. The orange balloon dog sold at a Christie’s auction for $58 million making Koons the highest paid artist ever.
This type pf Koons art is called Banality – which means to embrace without embarrassment our childhood affection for toys . Otherwise recognized as Michael Jackson and Bubbles. Kinda creepy.
Is this legal?
We’re all over the place here.
I couldn’t figure out how this was suspended.
She has lost her head.
Jeff’s favorite breed?
I know. I know. but I know you wanted to see it!
This was some photo shoot.
I do appreciate that he has tried so many mediums, but does this look good?
Hey, is this adult Disneyland?
Arrow loved all the colors!
And He thought this was play-dough
It’s a piece of cake.
This is where we saw Koons early work. I am not sure I understood the 50 piece Hoover vacuum instillation.
Jeff took a shot at advertising. I think all the greats try it. Wasn’t Mark Arsenal in advertising once?
Hennessy the civilized way to lay down the law. Does this mean – drink this now so I can get you to do what I want you to do?
Yes, 2 basketballs floating in a fish tank. $900,000
He too worked at Nike.
This isn’t the Jackson 5.
I love your work Jeff, but what is this? If you missed NYC you can go see for yourself at the Musée is Paris.
