Jeff Koons: A Retrospective, the largest exhibition dedicated to a single artist ever presented at the Whitney, reflects the range and scale of Koons’s art. The process of planning and mounting such an ambitious retrospective required an extraordinary effort. Gain a new appreciation for Koons’s work and for the roles of museum staff whose efforts were marshalled around the exhibition in this tour with Eleonora Nagy, conservator of three-dimensional works of art; Laura Phipps, senior curatorial assistant; and Joshua Rosenblatt, head preparator.
