abstract

In 1990, the thirty-five-year-old Jeff Koons (York, Pennsylvania, USA, 1955) officially debuted in Italy as participant artist of the 44th edition of Venice Biennale. He was invited to take part of the section called Aperto, which was dedicated to those young artists who had never exhibited at the Biennale. At that time Koons was not so famous and decided to present a disrespectful complex of works created in collaboration with the famous pornstar Cicciolina. Koons’ choice grants him the attention of critics and press. Despite the critical rejections, Koons’ participation at Venice Biennale and the interest of the media contributed to launch him on a successful international career.
