ICONS: Jeff Koons, ‘Rabbit’

Mon 22 Sep 2014

This is a past program.
ACCA Foyer

High and low references galore, Jeff Koons’ Rabbit 1986 combines a lofty legacy and an upstart brashness, all delivered in a quixotic, slippery, reflective surface. Koons went beyond post-modernism with his critiques of power and money, to a create a hyper-commodity: one that embraced the market-place.  The semiotics of surfaces, the psychology of the self-reflective, and the cultivation of the cute, camp and kitsch were all a part of this wascally wabbits’ raison d’etre.  But what does this have to do with Durer? Well that remains the question.

Juliana Engberg is a curator, writer, publisher and designer, she is the Artistic Director of ACCA and was the Artistic Director of the 19th Biennale of Sydney, 2014.

Get in quick, these lecture series sell out.
