June 27, 2014 through October 19, 2014

– Comprising almost 150 objects dating from 1978 to the present, this is the first and the most comprehensive career retrospective ever devoted to the groundbreaking oeuvre of Jeff Koons, one of the most controversial, influential and popular living artists. Among his notable achievements, Koons has pioneered new approaches to the readymade, broken the boundaries between fine art and mass culture, challenged the limits of industrial fabrication and transformed the relationship of artists to the global market while creating memorable works from the intimate to the monumental, in a range of mediums, that are at once whimsical, thoughtful, original and deliberately banal.

Reconstituting all of his most iconic works and significant series in a chronological narrative that allows visitors to understand the artist’s remarkably diverse output as a multifaceted whole, the display features seminal creations such as, “Inflatable Flowers (Short Pink, Tall Purple),” (1979), “New Hoover Convertibles,” (1981-89), “One Ball Total Equilibrium Tank (Spalding Dr. J 241 Series),” (1985), “Louis XIV,” (1986), “Michael Jackson and Bubbles,” (1988), “Ushering in Banality,” (1988),  “Balloon Dog,” (1994-2000), “Moon (Light Pink),” (1995–2000), “Tulips,” (1995–98), “Split-Rocker (Orange/Red),” (1999), “Loopy,” (1999), “Dutch Couple,” (2007), “Metallic Venus,” (2010 -12) and much more. Not only is this exhibition the artist’s first major museum presentation in New York and the first to fill nearly the entirety of the Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building with a single artist’s work, it is the final exhibition to take place there before the Museum opens its new building in the Meatpacking District in 2015.
