No doubt the artist Jeff Koons is a very busy man. Last fall, he brought his 10-foot-tall, stainless-steel Balloon Dog and other kitschy oddities to Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie and put on the first contemporary exhibition ever held at the Palace of Versailles in the apartments of the king. Tonight, he discusses those exhibits as shown in two new books documenting them, Celebration and Versailles. Glenn O’Brien, editor of Interview, asks the questions. The event is free, but seating is limited—reserve a spot by purchasing a copy of Celebration in advance on the Strand’s website.
