Drinks served after the lecture followed by a Private View of the Exhibition
Ashmolean Lecture Theatre
Dr Xa Sturgis, Director of the Ashmolean, gives this lecture Jeff Koons at the Ashmolean. Koons, a superstar of the contemporary art world, was enticed to Oxford by the Edgar Wind Society for Art History after winning their contemporary art prize. The Society was established and run by students of Oxford University to make art history accessible, fun and exciting. The show is co-curated by Norman Rosenthal and fourteen of the seventeen works will be exhibited in the UK for the first time. The works, including his most well-known sculptures and paintings, span Koons’ entire career. This unique opportunity to see his work will surely provoke conversations among those who see it.
