One Ball Total Equilibrium Tank by Jeff Koons will be on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art June 27-Oct. 19.

An Exhibit You Don't Want to Miss

More than 100 Jeff Koons pieces all in one place


What it is: In its grand finale at its existing site, New York's Whitney Museum of American Art will fill nearly its entire building with the work of a single artist in "Jeff Koons: A Retrospective." Though considered one of the most important contemporary artists, Koons has yet to be the subject of an exhibit of this scope, a comprehensive overview showcasing about 120 objects from the last three decades.

What you'll see:
Iconic works on display will include One Ball Total Equilibrium Tank, featuring a basketball suspended in a glass and steel tank; and Balloon Dog, an oversized sculpture of a balloon twisted into a dog shape. Plus, the show will debut Play-Doh, a monumental work resembling modeling clay that the artist has been working on for 20 years.

When: The show runs June 27-Oct. 19, after which the museum will close in preparation for its move to its new home next year in Manhattan's Meatpacking District.
