Jeff Koons: A Retrospective at Whitney Museum
June 27 – Oct 19, 2014

Jeff Koons is widely regarded as one of the most important, influential, popular, and controversial artists of the postwar era. Throughout his career, he has pioneered new approaches to the readymade, tested the boundaries between advanced art and mass culture, challenged the limits of industrial fabrication, and transformed the relationship of artists to the cult of celebrity and the global market.

Yet despite these achievements, Koons has never been the subject of a retrospective surveying the full scope of his career. Comprising 120 objects dating from 1979 to the present, this exhibition will be the most comprehensive ever devoted to the artist’s groundbreaking oeuvre.

By reconstituting all of his most iconic works and significant series in a chronological narrative, the retrospective will allow visitors to understand Koons’s remarkably diverse output as a multifaceted whole.

This exhibition (June 27 – Oct 19, 2014) will be the artist’s first major museum presentation in New York, and the first to fill nearly the entirety of the Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building with a single artist’s work. It will also be the final exhibition to take place there before the Museum opens its new building in the Meatpacking District in 2015.
