The Jeff Koons Collective are a group of young people aged 14-24.They have been working with artists, curators and designers to create merchandise and an events programme in response to the Jeff Koons exhibition at Brighton Museum.
Charlie from the Jeff Koons Collective said: ‘First of all we took some time to look at the work of Jeff Koons and really study the pieces that would be coming to the gallery. To be honest, I didn’t like it to begin with. It’s unusual and at first glance uninteresting…
But then we looked closer and started thinking about the meaning behind it and I guess they grew on me. Like with a lot of other contemporary art, until you stop and think about it, it’s all just a little strange.’
