A fantastic Jeff Koons exhibition has opened its doors at the Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland. Coinciding with the opening of the Art Week Basel, the Fondation presents “an extensive exhibition of the american artist jeff koons, documenting his artistic development over the past thirty years of practice through the lenses of three milestone series. ‘the new’ showcases koons’s earliest work, as he began in the early 1980’s with a series of readymade-like appliances and sculptures. ‘banality’, a period begun in 1988, includes traditionally crafted sculptures in porcelain and wood, that nonetheless take as their subject ironic confrontations between pop culture icons and baroque artworks.”
His most iconic sculptures, as well as paintings are all on display and moved into the perfect light. We also love the fact that they installed some of the pieces in the gardens of the Fondation, where Koons work is a real visual interrupter. The exhibition will be on until September 2nd, 2012.
Take a look at the exhibition in detail in the gallery.
