Anniversary Release

Jeff Koons
Puppy (Vase)

Wednesday, May 30, 2018, 5–7pm
Gagosian Shop, New York
www.gagosian.com/shop

Gagosian Shop will unveil one hundred editions of Jeff Koons’s Puppy (Vase) (1998), available for sale. Koons will be in attendance to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of one of his most popular early editions. Combining Koons’s interest in domestic objects, classical beauty, and childlike joy, Puppy (Vase) is a glazed porcelain vase in the shape of a small white Highland terrier, its wiry hair expertly articulated. The editions were produced in 1998, only a few years after the completion of Puppy (1992), Koons’s monumental topiary sculpture that is permanently installed at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. To attend the free event, RSVP to puppyvase@gagosian.com.

Puppy (Vase) is also available at the Gagosian Shop and on Artsy.

Public Installation

Jeff Koons

December 2017–January 2019
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
www.lacma.org

Jeff Koons’s monumental Balloon Monkey (Orange) (2006–13) is on view in the Los Angeles Times Central Court through January 2019. Koons’s meticulous reproduction of the twisted balloon shape in mirror-polished stainless steel plays with and confounds our natural material association of the pliable, air-filled form. Through these transformations and enlargements of scale, Koons makes familiar objects become alternately strange, humorous, and surreal.
