A select group will get to have a drink with Bubbles, Michael Jackson, and “Balloon Dog,” and “Rabbit” during Art Basel. Hugo Boss, the underwriter for Jeff Koons‘s Fondation Beyeler retrospective in Basel, Switzerland, will host a cocktail reception to toast the artist on June 14 during the art fair. The opening night soirée promises to be one of the major events of Art Basel. A major supporter of the arts, Hugo Boss has had a longstanding relationship with the artist, which started 15 years ago when the fashion label installed his massive topiary delight “Puppy” at the Guggenheim Bilbao in 1997 to mark the museum’s opening.
“Jeff Koons” will be on display at the Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland, through September 2.
