Sculptural Dialogues: Carol Bove to Jeff Koons

The booth is a dialogue of forms and ideas, starting with Carol Bove’s sculpture which twists stainless steel into seemingly soft contortions, to Donald Judd's exploration of space through serial composition. Jeff Koons' whimsical 'Cracked Egg (Yellow)' adds a playful touch to the serious artistry on display.
