About

Jeff Koons has been called the world’s most famous, controversial and subversive living artist, and in 2019 he’s coming to the world’s oldest public museum.

This major exhibition offers an exciting journey through a career that has pushed at the boundaries of contemporary art. From the moment he burst onto the scene with floating basket balls and ready-made objects to his recent re-working of classical statues and Old Master paintings, Jeff Koons has, at turns, delighted, shocked and intrigued his viewers.

Curated with Koons himself, the show features 17 major works, from the 1980s to today, 14 of which have never been to the UK before. They include some of his most well-known series such as Equilibrium, Banality, Antiquity and his recent Gazing Ball paintings and sculptures. In the galleries of the Ashmolean Museum, where the collections range from prehistory to the present, Jeff Koons’s work will be ‘in conversation’ with the history of art and ideas which has been his focus over the past four decades.
