Jeff Koons at Fondation Beyeler

Currently on show at Basel’s Fondation Beyeler is Switzerland’s first ever museum show dedicated to Jeff Koons. The show features works from three of Koons’ series- The New (1980-1987), Banality (1988) and Celebration (1994 to present), and comprises over 50 works. Cleaning apparatus, kitsch crafted porcelain and wood sculptures, and high-gloss child-like creations, all highly distinctive of the artist, which explore themes of sexuality, innocence, beauty and happiness, will be on display until the beginning of September 2012.
