Jeff Koons is widely regarded as one of the world’s most important living artists. Brighton Museum and Art Gallery's new exhibition is the first showing in England (outside Tate) of Koons’ group of works in ARTIST ROOMS, an inspirational collection of modern and contemporary art acquired through the generosity of Anthony d’Offay by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland for the nation.
Provocative and playful, Jeff Koons’ work reflects upon the power of consumer industries and the aesthetics and culture of taste. The group of works in ARTIST ROOMS includes works from series such as The New; Equilibrium; Banality; Made in Heaven; Easyfun and Popeye.
The works on display are taken from ARTIST ROOMS, an inspirational collection of modern and contemporary art jointly owned by Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland, which was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments. ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is a partnership with Arts Council England and the Art Fund, making available the ARTIST ROOMS collection to galleries throughout the UK.
