Kiehl’s Since 1851 and Art Production Fund Present Seated Ballerina by Jeff Koons

May 12 @ 8:00 am - June 2 @ 5:00 pm

Kiehl’s Since 1851 and Art Production Fund are pleased to present Jeff Koons’s Seated Ballerina, a large-scale public art installation, hosted by Tishman Speyer at Rockefeller Center from Friday, May 12 – Friday, June 2, 2017. The inflatable nylon sculpture stands 45 feet high and depicts a seated ballerina from the artist’s iconic Antiquity series.

Often referencing historical imagery and found objects, Koons based Seated Ballerina on a small porcelain figurine. The sculpture acts as a contemporary iteration of the goddess Venus, and symbolizes notions of beauty and connectivity. Its reflective surface mirrors its immediate environment and engages with each viewer. The work aims to bring awareness to National Missing Children’s Month this May, in an effort to support organizations like the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC) that work tirelessly to create a safer world for children.
