Jeff Koons Art Magazine Ad Series

Four ads taken out in four different publications (Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, and Art News) used to publicize the exhibition of his now famous ‘Banality Series’ in 1988. The show happened simultaneously in three galleries, with each sculpture in an edition of 3.

From Wikipedia:

Each of the full-page features depicted different parts of Koons’ reputed persona:

• A propagator of the banal: Koons is shown alongside two pigs
• A bad influence on future generations: he is in a classroom with lots of children, a blackboard contains the slogans “Exploit the Masses” and “Banality as Savior”
• A gigolo: he is standing in front of a boudoir-style tent
• A ladies man: he is with a pony and several women in bikinis

Bathsheba, Barbados

If you’re looking for a quick escape from New York, consider the sleepy surf town of Bathsheba, Barbados. Located on the lush east coast of the island, far, far away from the sunburnt tourist herds (at least a 30 minute drive), it’s a chill persons paradise. There are empty beaches with natural baths and grottos, a world class surf break, strong rum punches, and delicious plates of marlin. On our recent visit, we stayed at the Sea-U Guest House, a relaxing bed and breakfast located in a Bajan style plantation house replete with a hammock jungle, soothing coastal breezes, and an honor bar. Once you’re there for 24 hours, you’ll forget your troubles and never want to return home.

Barbados is a 4.5 hour direct flight from JFK on Jet Blue.

Installation View: Ed Templeton – Symptoms
