Jeff Koons, Just In Time?

Is Paris getting a “free” Jeff Koons? Possibly, although it seems not all is well between the city of romance and Jeff Koons.

But more interestingly is what French art critic, Judith Benhamou-Huet, calls “superconceptual”: the idea that what an artist is selling is only the idea. The purchaser, or in this case, the “donee,” has to foot the bill for production of the artwork. Is Koons on to something? Made-to-order art? Just-in-time? Could be, and could be the reason Koons has laid off some of his painting staff.
