Jeff Koons. A Retrospective

Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

27 June – 19 October 2014



In 2015 the Whitney Museum is relocating to the Meatpacking District. It is marking its departure from the Marcel Breuer Building, which has housed its exhibition spaces since 1966, with a new show: the very first retrospective of the work of Jeff Koons, featuring his creative output from 1978 up until the present day.


Jeff Koons is undoubtedly one of the most successful artists of our time. Only last year, one of his Balloon Dogs fetched a record price of over 58 million dollars at auction. Yet he also sparks controversy with his interpretation of consumer culture, kitsch, ready-made products and mass production. His biggest solo exhibition, which also serves as a retrospective of his work, can be seen at the Whitney Museum until mid October. Almost 150 pieces created over the last 36 years are exhibited within a space of more than 2,500 square metres, covering almost the entire exhibition area. Such pieces include famous works such as the One Ball Total Equilibrium Tank, Rabbit, Michael Jackson and Bubbles, as well as one of the aforementioned Balloon Dogs. New works such as his giant sculpture Play-Doh are unveiled to the public for the first time. This exhibition will later appear at the Centre Pompidou (26 November 2014 – 27 April 2015) and the Guggenheim Bilbao (5 June – 27 September 2015).
