Thoughts on #Koons #ArtSelfie craze? "Proto-selfie objects that are coming into full bloom right now."
Other exhibitions you wanted to show before the close of the building uptown? Robert Irwin's Scrim Veil. #Koons
Surprised by critical range of exhibition? Rothkopf says, "It's hard to make art that's still challenging 30 yrs after it's made." #Koons
The most physically challenging work? Play-Doh and Gorilla (which weigh 16K and 15K lbs respectively!). #Koons
Cat on a Clothesline balances w/ a rod that goes thru the custom pedestal, which is reinforced with steel. #Koons

#Koons and curator Scott Rothkopf are greeting folks in the lobby. What a great crowd!
