This solo exhibition features recent works from the celebrated artist’s Gazing Ball series, for which Koons affixes a blue mirrored-glass sphere to replicas of famous paintings or sculptures, blurring the lines between artistic mediums and reconfiguring the manner in which a viewer engages with these renowned works of art. On view here, Koons’s manipulation of paintings by Jacques-Louis David, Nicolas Poussin, Gustave Courbet, Tintoretto and Rembrandt, along with a sculpture by Marcel Duchamp.

MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab has come together with Swiss designer Christophe Guberan to produce a series of large-scale, inflatable works for this new exhibition at Patrick Parrish. Utilizing Rapid Liquid Printing, a 3D-printing process developed by Self-Assembly Lab that allows for the production of complex and customized objects in minutes, the objects in the exhibition reconfigure the relationship between artistic production and manufacturing.
