The criteria that museums use to acquire their works are not so different between one another. Collections are formed through more or less similar categories: bailment, donations and purchases. In the case of bailment, an artist, the family or guardian, gives to a certain institution its archive and works to be protected and exhibited.
The strange case of the Baroness
By Abel Cervantes
The history of art that we have been taught is boring. The names that make it up are generally great figures to admire. Similarly, the pieces of the canon of art stand out for an unattainable beauty or a wonderful halo to which viewers should appreciate with absolute respect and amazement. However, history is boring not because of the events that make it up but because of the narratives that contain it in books, magazines, museums and art fairs.

The Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) has incorporated into its collection the first photograph of a black hole, which is 55 million light years from our planet. The image is the result of about two years of research in which a series of telescopes located in different parts of the world were aligned to become a kind of Earth-sized telescope. With this event, MoMA opens new routes on one of the most interesting questions of recent times, which cannot be answered from a single perspective: what is art?

When we face a work by Jeff Koons we have two alternatives: to relate its motives to the history of art or to be seduced by its contemporary presence. Antiquitysynthesizes both positions. The series that began in 2018 mixes images from different eras: prehistoric and Greco-Roman deities, 19th-century figures or women of the 20th century (Gretchen Mol dressed as the icon of the 50 Betty Page in Antiquity3) achieving a syncretism that recalls at the same time Dalí’s surrealism and the American advertising silhouettes of the 60s. As Koons mentioned: “I’ve always loved Surrealism and Dada and Pop, so I just follow my interests and focus on them.”

Jeff Koons is an undeniable figure, regardless of whether we agree with that statement or not. His work is practically inseparable from the shiny image he was forged of himself as an artist. Born January 21, 1955, in York, Pennsylvania, Koons studied painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA at the Art Institute of Maryland in Baltimore.
