Thanks for the post, Old Man.
My wife and I attended the last show ever at the old Whitney Museum in NYC last year, and it was a major Koons exhibit.
I have often struggled with Koons, and often think of his work as kitsch.
I did gain some appreciation of his work as I do most of the time when viewing a major exhibition, but still not too sold overall. I did find his pornographic series more interesting than I expected and listening to the comments in the Adult Only room very funny.
Speaking of pornographic, I read today that feminist filmmaker Candida Royalle died this weekend.
