Jeff Koons & Comic Costumes @ The Met

You know...I don't really respect Jeff Koons. Because to me, he stands for a lot of things I hate about contemporary art. I don't like him. That being said...I do like his series of giant stainless steel sculptures and did want to see them on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Am I so easily seduced by shiny things? Apparently, yes.

Also at the Met right now is the exhibit Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy. Some are real costumes (like from the film Iron Man) and others are pieces made by designers (like Dolce & Gabbana) who were inspired by comic culture. The mixture of originals and reimagined designs made for a very fun show. POW!
