Jeff Koons “Popeye Series” At Serpentine Gallery

This summer, famous London based Serpentine Gallery welcomes American artist Jeff Koons, who will be showing his “Popeye Series”.

“The Serpentine Gallery presents the first survey of a key series of works by the celebrated American artist Jeff Koons. Working in thematic series since the early 1980s, Koons has explored notions of consumerism, taste, banality, childhood and sexuality. The Popeye Series incorporates ideas that are central to the artist’s work, including surreal combinations of everyday objects, art historical references and children’s toys. The paintings in the Popeye Series combine disparate found images with images of the inflatables and readymades used in the sculptures, while the sculptures themselves continue Koons’s interest in juxtaposing cast aluminium exact replicas of inflatable pool toys with other readymade objects.”

The exhibition runs from July 2nd until September 13th.
