Jeff Koons at the Whitney
& collect
Love him or hate him. Former Wall Street bond broker turned artist who exploited images from readymade, kitsch, and shameless celebrity culture of the post-war West, Jeff Koons is at once one of the most popular and controversial artists of our time. As a living artist, he is holding one of the highest sales records in the history of art auction. Despite his commercial success of thirty-five years since 1979, Koons has not had a major solo exhibition in America, until this most comprehensive show ⟨Jeff Koons: A Retrospective⟩ (June27th–October 19th, 2014). Images courtesy: Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
