Summer has begun in New York City. As we all know, the summer brings, besides the amazing, and albeit sometimes stuffy, sunny weather, exciting art events. What better way than starting with the energy, the color, the irony and amazing work of Jeff Koons— who is one of the most important and influential artists of the postwar era.
Jeffrey “Jeff” Koons is an American artist known for his reproductions of banal objects, which he creates in both New York City and his hometown of York, Pennsylvania where he lives and works. The public knows the artist best for a few signature sculptures, including Balloon Dog, which was installed on the roof of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2008.
Jeff Koons: A Retrospective is going to be the artist’s first major museum exhibition at the acclaimed Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.
Using potent colors in every piece of art, and giving a striking touch for art enthusiasts Jeff Koons: A Retrospective is, for sure, one of the most anticipated exhibitions of this summer. The show opens on June 27 through October 19, 2014.
Cannot make it to New York City this summer? No worries, the exhibition will travel to the Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris (November 26, 2014–April 27, 2015) and to the Guggenheim Bilbao in Spain (June 5–September 27, 2015).
I know, I will be the first in line to check out this show. I hope to see you there!
