Big star of the season Jeff Koons, on display at Palazzo Strozzi until January 30, 2022. "On display are some iconic pieces that have become part of our imagination, alongside works that have never yet been shown to the public - Palazzo Strozzi Director Arturo Galansino tells us - A chronological path, which at the same time carries forward a central theme of Koons' art: the artist finds in the idea of "shine" one of the main characteristics of his art. A concept that goes beyond the mirrored surface, and therefore the idea of decoration or embellishment, and becomes the very matter of Koons' art, uniting both exteriority and essence. There is a great philosophical reflection behind the artist's work, next to the undoubted spectacularity. Koons is also a great lover of ancient art and of our city. We are happy to host him at Palazzo Strozzi."
