Jeff Koons: A Retrospective in New York City

Art is an extremely subjective thing. I took photography in high school because I could not draw or make anything out of clay even if my life depended on it. When I was in NYC, I came at a perfect time when Jeff Koons: A Retrospective was in the city.

I know that this isn’t what I would usually post on my blog, but since I do travel quite a bit in a year, I think I’m going to start writing travel posts as well. To start off, Jeff Koons is a highly respected, controversial, and popular artist from York, Pennsylvania. In my opinion, most of his works are contemporary reproductions of the usual objects. If you want a familiar glimpse at what his art work looks like, just check out Lady Gaga’s Art Pop album cover. His works approach a modern twist in the already made art pieces and sculptures that we already know of. The exhibition at The Whitney exhibited over 150 of Koons’s most iconic pieces arranged in a manner that would allow spectators to get a glimpse into the artist’s world. I was very lucky to be there to see all of the pieces with my own eyes. Sadly, this exhibition just ended but for more information, just visit: Whitney.Org
