The name of Jeff Koons is generally attached to astronomical amounts of money and various auction records to such extent that one might forget to look at his art. The retrospective at the Whitney is the opportunity to do the latter. Whether one is going to leave mesmerized is an other question all together and I have left enjoying the same artworks I had in the past. Yet it is an opportunity not to be missed and it ends this week!
