This volume, Shine, is published for Jeff Koons’ largest ever exhibition in Italy, developed in close dialogue with the artist, and presenting some of the most celebrated works of this master who, from the mid-1970s until the present day, has forged a reputation as one of the most important figures of the global contemporary art scene. The book gathers paintings and sculptures on loan from international collections and museums in order to explore the concept of ‘shine’.Responsible for countless works that have entered the collective imagination, Koons regards ‘shine’ as a key feature of his artwork – from the postmodern reinvention of the readymade to works in perfectly polished metal that resemble inflatable toys. Indeed, “shine” is far more than an ornament: it is the very substance of these works, as this reflective property brings together appearance and essence.
