Discover the cultural package available at Hotel Savoy from 3 October 2021 until 29 January 2022
In partnership with Palazzo Strozzi, Hotel Savoy, the Rocco Forte Hotel in Florence, invites guests to experience one of the most awaited exhibitions of the year: Jeff Koons. Shine, dedicated to the revolutionary American artist.
This major exhibition brings to Florence a wide selection of the most celebrated works by Jeff Koons who, from the mid-70s to the present day, has forged a reputation as one of the most prominent and controversial figures in the contemporary art world. For the duration of this great retrospective, visitors can book the exclusive cultural package “Experience Jeff Koons in Florence” with Hotel Savoy.
Guests will enjoy a private tour of the exhibition accompanied by a dedicated professional guide, or alternatively, if wishing to peruse the collection in private, guests can request an exclusive, after-hours tour at Palazzo Strozzi at an additional cost. A beautiful exhibition catalogue is gifted as a memento to take home.
The exhibit will host loans from some of the world’s most important collections and museums, exploring the concept of “shine” in Jeff Koons’s work – an ambiguous idea that oscillates between the dualities of being and seeming, or truth and sensation. Jeff Koons has found a key principle in the idea of “shine” for his innovative sculptures and installations, which set out to question our relationship with reality but also the very concept of a work of art. The American artist’s works place the observer before a mirror in which they can at once see themselves within their environment and thus experience affirmation.
