Jeff Koons:
Popeye Series
2 July — 13 September 2009

The Serpentine Gallery presents an exhibition of the work of the celebrated American artist Jeff Koons, his first major exhibition in a public gallery in England.

Working in thematic series since the early 1980s, Koons has explored notions of consumerism, taste, banality, childhood and sexuality. He is known for his meticulously fabricated works that draw on a variety of objects and images from American and consumer culture.

For his exhibition at the Gallery, Koons presents paintings and sculptures from his Popeye series, which he began in 2002.

Go see the Derek Jarman exhibition, curated by Isaac Julien at the Serpentine this month, showing a collection of this pioneering independent film-maker and painter’s work from the last four decades.
