Jeff Koons: American Imagination

2017 Harman Eisner Artist in Residence Jeff Koons and entertainment industry titan and former Walt Disney Company chairman and CEO Michael Eisner, join in a conversation about creating wonder. From household appliances to iconic large-scale inflatables, Koons has pioneered transforming familiar subjects into captivating works of art, and democratizing access through major public art displays. Kicking off his Institute residency, Koons reflects on images of his work and discusses with Eisner his early life, breaking out, pop culture, and what it's like to capture America's imagination.
