Jeff Koons spoke with talk show host Charlie Rose for almost an hour about art, culture, and his pursuit of happiness. The conversation, which was broadcasted by PBS on July 28th, opened with a discussion of the large retrospective of his work currently on at the Whitney, an exhibition that Koons said has prompted him to feel “more ambitious”. Other topics included the artists who inspire Koons, including Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Salvador Dali, his creative process, and his future plans. A recurring theme was Koons’ desire to continue to do what he loves and explore “the freedom that we have for gesture”.
