Adjoint to the week-long Art Basel fete, Swiss museum Fondation Beyeler partnered with American artist Jeff Koons to assemble and showcase key series from his repertoire under one roof, namely, The New, Banality, and Celebration.

Yesterday night in particular, the Foundation Beyler hosted a private dinner at which the pop-age artist himself was present, along with guests Zaha HadidTracey Emin, Stephanie Seymour, and Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn.  Koons took the opportunity to unveil his over-sized floral installation, “Split Rocker”.  Serpentine Gallery director Hans Ulrich Obrist and architect Rem Koolhaas afterward gave the pre-dinner keynote.
