3. Jeff Koons at the Pompidou Center
Jeff Koons is one of the most famous artist of his generation and one of the most controversial too. He plays with codes of modern culture, enjoying confusing the issue between art and mass culture. This exhibition which is the first largest retrospective in Europe, traces the 35 years of career of this artist who began as a trader and then turned to contemporary art. Visitors will discover new creations in avant-première and also those which are now iconic like The Rabbit, Michael Jackson and Bubbles, or Balloon Dog. Hurry up because it ends April 27 !
