Is Koons’ “Rabbit” Worth $91 Million? Value Isn’t Measured In Cash

Andrea Scott: “It became an icon of eighties excess (and, thus, of white, male privilege): fuck like bunnies, make more money, the one with the most toys wins. It was an instant classic worthy of the oxymoron, as weightless as Andy Warhol’s shiny silver clouds of inflated Mylar and as radical as Constantin Brancusi’s polished-bronze ‘Bird in Space’.” – The New Yorker

What Does It Mean That Jeff Koons’ Bunny Just Sold For $91 Million? Anything?

Sebastian Smee: “What the sale of Koons’s “Rabbit” — an auction record for a living artist — is telling us with special force is that the question of valuation is not just about rationality or irrationality. It is, on a deeper level, redundant. It’s redundant because we are in a realm divorced from reality. Intentionally so.” – Washington Post

Why Painting Isn’t as Elitist as You Might Think

It keeps the top end of the art market bubbling. But it’s easier for anyone with an internet connection to engage with a painting than a performance or a piece of video art.

Court Finds Jeff Koons Liable For Plagiarizing Famous Fashion Ad

“The American artist Jeff Koons has been found guilty of plagiarising an iconic French clothing advertisement for one of his celebrated sculptures, Fait d’Hiver. Advertising creative director Franck Davidovici had sued Mr Koons, among the world’s most bankable living artists, for copyright infringement, saying he had produced what his lawyer called a ‘servile copy’ of a famous advertising campaign he ran in 1985 for French clothing brand Naf-Naf.”

After Furious Debate, A Place Is Found In Paris For Jeff Koons Tulips

There was an uproar from critics who argued that the gesture was clumsy and opportunistic, if not cynical, as Mr. Koons didn’t have a direct connection to the terrorist attacks. “The general outcry was in part caused by a form of outdated anti-Americanism, but it was also a sincere, offended one,” said Guillaume Piens, the director of the Art Paris Art Fair. “Whenever artists touch on memory and victims, it’s hard to see an uninterested, mere artistic act only.”

An art collector has paid $6.4 million over the years for a Jeff Koons sculpture called “Balloon Venus Hohlen Fels (Magenta)" that may not even be in the process of getting made.

Now, he's suing, saying things like "'Ponzi meets The Producers" in the complaint, reports Courthouse News Service.“Defendants’ enterprise of ostensible civil corruption bleeds collectors of deposits and payments, drawing on their funding without supplying a product in exchange therefor,” the complaint states. “While the design, manufacture and completion of the so-called Jeff Koons sculptures wallow at best and are continually and fraudulently postponed by a factor of years and contracted colle...

Virtual Reality Comes To Art (But Who Owns - Controls - What?)

Legal questions about ownership of virtual public spaces were thrown into sharp relief in October when Snapchat partnered with Koons to allow users to project his balloon sculptures in ­specific sites around the world using augmented reality (AR). In protest against an “augmented reality corporate invasion”, the artist Sebastian Errazuriz “graffiti-bombed” one of the works […]

Artist Graffiti's Jeff Koons Work - In Augmented Reality

It's a protest. And graffiti artist Sebastian Errazuriz didn't physically deface one of Koons' famous balloon dogs. But the augmented reality graffiti is Errazuriz's way of staking a claim to public space. He doesn’t think the privilege of geo-tagging should necessarily fall to technology giants. After Snapchat announced a partnership with the sculptor Jeff Koons that uses […]

A Short Documentary on Artist Jeff Koons, Narrated by Scarlett Johansson

If you don’t move, nothing happens. - Jeff Koons Jeff Koons, the subject of Oscar Boyson's recent pop video essay, above, is surely one of the most widely known living artists. As with fellow artists Damien Hirst and Cindy Sherman the spotlight has produced an army of detractors who know very little about him, or his large, far-ranging body of work. The choice of Scarlett Johansson to provide snarky second-person narration might not jolly Koons’ naysayers into suspending judgment long enoug...

How Jeff Koons's 'Banality' Established Current Copyright Law For Artists

"The Banality shows spurred five lawsuits, some decades after the original exhibit. One is pending today, almost 30 years after the show, while another settled out of court. Koons lost the remaining three, with courts finding him liable for copyright infringement and rejecting his fair use defense: that he was parodying the source material. But […]

Ukranian Artist Behind Design for Jeff Koons Ballerinas Profiled in Art Newspaper

The Art Newspaper takes a closer look at the work of Ukrainian artist Oksana Zhnikrup, who created a trove of statuettes for mass production in Russia, and whose work serves as the bedrock for Jeff Koons’s recent Seated Ballerina pieces.  Koons bought the rights to Zhnikrup’s family in 2006, says Elena Korus, a Ukranian art historian. “Of course they weren’t […]

Jeff Koons Gives A Present To Paris - And Paris Is, Let's Say, Ambivalent

The gift is a large sculpture - a hand holding a bouquet of the artist's signature balloon tulips - in honor of the victims of the 2015 terrorist attacks. But it's a problematic present: it's too heavy for the site Koons wants, not everyone cares for it (one museum director says, "I think it will […]
