On Friday Los Angeles’s The Broad announced an unlikely pairing for an upcoming talk in its “The Un-Private Collection” series. On February 24, 2014, gazing ball mastermind Jeff Koons will sit down with filmmaker and artist John Waters for a public talk at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown L.A. The pair will discuss Koons’s works, of which Eli and Edythe Broad have one of the largest collections in the world.

The 7pm talk, tickets to which will cost $10 when they go on sale November 15, will be the latest in the ongoing series of high-profile pairings. Later this month artist Mark Bradford will talk with curator Katy Siegel; next month during Art Basel in Miami Beach the Broads will chat with architect Elizabeth Diller of Diller Scofidio + Renfro; and later in December Iranian photographer and filmmaker Shirin Neshat will talk to Rauschenberg Foundation executive director Christy MacLear.

“Jeff Koons is an artist who challenges our cultural assumptions, a trait he shares with John Waters,” Joanne Heyler, The Broad’s founding director, said in a statement. “We expect this to be a provocative discussion between two brilliant artists and are pleased to be able to present it to a Los Angeles audience at the iconic Orpheum Theater.”
