"Jeff Koons Versailles"... what can I say other than that, you had to be there? Sure we've all seen Koons' work in museums and galleries before. But few of us have seen his work juxtaposed in such a way that the art is completely new again. A handful of old-fashioned folks complained. Everyone I attended with cruised the monumental grounds, mouths agape. The 30-year retrospective at the chateau was simply fabulous. I feel so damn lucky to have been able to visit, thanks to a last minute extension of the show. My favorite piece? The Hoover works in the Antichambre du Grand Couvert -- so ridiculous. "Jeff Koons Versailles" is the best museum exhibition I visited in 2008. I'm certain I'll never see a show quite like it, ever again.
