Whitney Story

Whitney Stories Video: Jeff Koons
Oct 6, 2014

Jeff Koons is widely regarded as one of the most important, influential, popular, and controversial artists of the postwar era. In this Whitney Stories video, Koons reflects upon the significance of having his first retrospective at the Whitney Museum at age 59, and discusses the manifesto that drives his work.

This video is part of an ongoing series which sheds light on the Whitney’s plans through conversations with artists, Whitney staff, and integral members of the new building's construction team—view more Whitney Stories videos below.
