Koons ex­hi­bi­tion

Vocable (All English) - - Échos -

Thanks to a group of stu­dents, the Amer­i­can artist Jeff Koons, a mas­sive su­per­star in the world of con­tem­po­rary art, will get a rare mu­seum show in the United King­dom next year. The ex­hi­bi­tion will take place at the Ash­molean Mu­seum in Ox­ford, from Fe­bru­ary to June 2019, fea­tur­ing 17 works by the artist, 14 of which have never been shown in the United King­dom. The project was ini­ti­ated by stu­dents from the Edgar Wind So­ci­ety for Art His­tory at Ox­ford Univer­sity, who de­cided to create a con­tem­po­rary art prize and to award this year’s prize to Koons, who has been in­vited to Ox­ford. The plans for a ret­ro­spec­tive of Koons’s ca­reer in the United King­dom emerged af­ter the artist flew to Ox­ford to ac­cept the prize. Well done, stu­dents!
