Love him or hate him, Jeff Koons sold his Balloon Dog (Orange) on Novermeber 2013 for $58.4 million becoming the most expensive work sold at auction by a living artist. This American pop artist is known for his reproductions of banal objects in stainless steel with mirror-finish surfaces.
Jeff Koons: A Retrospective exhibition is the artist’s first major museum presentation in New York and the first to fill nearly the entirety of the Whitney Museum (945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street, New York, NY 10021). It will also be the final exhibition to take place there before the Museum opens its new building in the Meatpacking District in 2015.
Who doesn’t want to see life-size mounds of play-doh, Popeye and balloon dogs? It’s a fun exhibition you don’t want to miss – open till October 19, 2014. To top that, Jeff Koons and H&M are collaborating and there’s a ballon dog bag involved! Wow.
