Whether you like him or not, Jeff Koons has been the most talked about artist around since his retrospective opened at the Whitney Museum. However, "Jeff Koons: A Retrospective" is certainly not the only show worth seeing right now.

In June alone, dozens of awesome exhibitions opened, many of which come with fascinating back-stories. At Oakland's Loakal Art Gallery and Boutique, Chris Blackstock is currently showing his canvases of a loner making his way through a post-apocalyptic desert, for example. On view at Jonathan LeVine Gallery is Rafael Silveira's show, which takes viewers through a surreal looking glass into a strange world. Check out our list of The 20 Best Exhibitions of the Month (So Far). Some of them end soon, so you better hurry.
