A Retrospective—Banality Series
Whitney Museum of American Art
In one of the rooms, the Whitney as created this long, series of pedestals that you can walk along on both sides of the sculptures and see his Banality Series as a set. Very cool party of the retrospective. Jeff Koons is always playing with cultures’ sense of taste and these low brow fetishistic type objects have been raised to a high level. It is especially great to see the Michael Jackson and Bubbles the chimp sculpture. Jeff Koons has said that if he could have been anyone else in the world, he would have been Michael Jackson. This piece was created at the height of his popularity. Check it out.
