Virtual Talk

Jeff Koons in France

Presented on Tuesday, May 18, 2021

In English 

One of the most important, influential, and popular artists of the post-war era, Jeff Koons has built a special relationship with France over his career. In 2008, he was invited to exhibit his works at the Château de Versailles, becoming the first contemporary artist, and the only American one, to be presented in the palace. After the 2015 terror attacks in Paris, Koons offered a sculpture of tulips to the city as a memorial to the victims. In a special conversation with art historian Joachim Pissarro, Koons will look back at his longstanding connection to France, focusing on his extraordinary exhibition in Versailles and providing insight into his creative process.
