“As with all great contemporary art, Jeff Koons’ work at first leaves you confused and possibly angered. His sculptures and paintings are deadpan, misleading, comforting, and even threatening at times in their guiltless devotion to innocence. Koons is never campy or even merely clever. Just smart.”
– John Waters on Jeff Koons
The Broad presented an enlightening, irreverent, unforgettable evening with two icons of pop and visual culture. Writer and filmmaker John Waters lead artist Jeff Koons in a conversation about the inspiration and ideas behind his unique works—many of which are in the Broad collection—against the backdrop of Broadway’s glamorous Orpheum Theatre.
