Jeff Koons: A Private Portrait

Friday, 1/19 to Sunday, 1/21

"Jeff Koons' works are world-famous for their sympathetic appearance, such as Balloon Dog and Rabbit, yet behind the interior design flair of these lies a philosophical message in close contact with the reality that surrounds them." —NSS Magazine

"Jeff Koons teaches that a functional family can be empowering for one’s career, even with seven children." —Chiara Bassi, Sommelier Suite

Jeff Koons is widely regarded as one of the most influential, popular and disputed artists of the last 30 years. This film will show the hidden mechanisms lying behind the person, the artist and the Koons brand. It’s an intimate exploration of Jeff Koon’s consciousness aiming to discover what motivates him and shapes his incomparable vision. With exclusive access to the Koons family home in York, Pennsylvania, the documentary investigates Koons’ roots and everyday life, follows him to New York City to his vast studio where tens of painters, sculptors and graphic designers are based, and then on to Qatar and Europe, to the Greek island of Hydra during his 2021 five exhibitions tour.

Among the other works, the documentary shows Play Doh, Puppy, Balloon dog, Banality, Michael Jackson and Bubbles, Tulips, Lobster, Pink Panther, Bracelet, Cracked Egg, New Hoover Convertible and the contributions of the Koons family members, curators, gallery owners and artists such as Julian Schnabel.

Reserved seating is in place for this screening.
