ARTFCITY’S REVIEWS MY REVIEW OF JEFF KOONS SHOW AT THE WHITNEY AS FOLLOWS:

‘A satisfying analysis of Jeff Koons’s retrospective by Rodrigo Canete, who takes issue with Jerry Saltz and Roberta Smith for critical disdain without deep analysis of pop art context. Smith’s review was actually fairly complimentary, and Saltz concludes his review with comparisons to Pop Art. But this needed to be said: “[B]y embodying the alpha male super rich male artist, Jeff Koons is making evident his own weaknesses, and that is the point…creating a whole system of narcissistic social values.” He thinks that Koons is bringing forward Lichtenstein’s concerns and using the idea of inflation to connote inflated prices, ego, and weakness. It’s a nice change from the diss-lodging’.
