Join two cultural icons, John Waters & Jeff Koons, at the gorgeous Orpheum Theatre.
Two revolutionary artists, Jeff Koons and John Waters, join forces for a public discussion on February 24. The ever-fascinating iconoclastic filmmaker Waters, who William Burroughs once called "The Pope of Trash,” just might be the ideal person to interview visual artist Koons, whose work has always pushed the boundaries of good taste. The event is co-presented by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles’s ALOUD series and the much-anticipated Broad Museum’s Un-Private Collection series. Opening in late 2014 in Downtown, The Broad’s expansive contemporary art collection includes a large selection of Koons’ artworks. The interview is slated to include questions about the ideas behind Koons’ controversial works, such as “Michael Jackson and Bubbles” and “Balloon Dog (Blue).” The evening takes place at one of Downtown’s architectural gems: the iconic Orpheum Theatre, built in 1926, which boasts Paris Opera-inspired interiors and majestic crystal chandeliers. Experience the rare opportunity to attend a talk between two envelope-pushers.
