Jeff Koons, The Retrospective
The Centre Pompidou is staging the first exhaustive retrospective devoted to Jeff Koons in Europe, starting on 26 November. This unprecedented exhibition makes it possible to fully appreciate a body of work that has marked the contemporary artistic and cultural landscape for 35 years.
While Jeff Koons has been the subject of numerous exhibitions presenting either precise groups of his work or specific sculptures in a given historical environment, no other exhibition has brought together his work in an exhaustive chronological itinerary covering his entire output. This retrospective contains around 100 sculptures and paintings, and retraces all the landmarks in the artist’s career.
The works exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, which come from all over the world, have become present-day icons. The aquariums in the « Equilibrium » series (1985), « Rabbit » (1986), « Michael Jackson and Bubbles » (1988) and « Ballon Dog »(1994 – 2000) have gained immense popularity and made their mark on contemporary visual culture.
The retrospective takes a historical and chronological approach, highlighting the different cycles in the artist’s work from the early pieces reflecting the art of their times to current works that implicitly dialogue with the history of classical art. It highlights the consistency and main themes of the artist’s work, as well as the diversity and richness of his creative power.
