Jeff Koons' Infamous "Made in Heaven" IS BACK!

When first shown at the Venice Biennale in 1990, the paintings, sculptures and installations of Jeff Koons’ “Made in Heaven” series captured the public's imagination to such an extent that a solo show of the works at Sonnabend Gallery in New York the following year generated lines around the block. To this day, “Made in Heaven” remains the most debated work in the career of this celebrated artist. On October 6th, and in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the original Venice presentation of this landmark series, Luxembourg & Dayan will unveil “Jeff Koons: Made in Heaven Paintings,” an exhibition of nine major canvases and one glass sculpture from the artist’s most renowned body of work. The exhibition will remain on view at the gallery through January 21, 2011. [link]
