Jeff Koons and the Art of Kitsch

April 29, 2011 by Kay

Monday, 2nd May 2011 12.45-1.30pm Hawthornden Lecture Theatre Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art website. Free

Jeff Koons is one of the most notorious living artists. It could be argued, however, that his commercial success has blinded us to his actual importance as an artist.

David Hopkins, Professor of Art History and Theory at the University of Glasgow, will examine a few key themes in Koons's art, such as masculinism, nostalgia, and the hypocrisy of 'taste', in order to assess how seriously we should take his work.
