How often do you have the opportunity to view a collection of modern art’s greatest works by artists like Vincent van Gogh, Piet Mondrian, and Frida Kahlo? From June 9th to October 7th, 200 key works from the Museum of Modern Art’s iconic collection will be on display in the National Gallery of Victoria. This unique exhibit is internationally exclusive to the NGV and a not-to-be-missed event for art lovers.
The exhibit will be arranged chronologically into thematic sections, from Minimalism to Post Modernism, Futurism and Surrealism, and more. The emergence of a ‘new art’ at the dawn of the twentieth-century is represented by some of MoMA’s earliest acquisitions, including masterworks by Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Paul Cézanne.
Works by pioneering Cubist and Futurist artists, including Pablo Picasso and Umberto Boccioni, appear alongside the radically abstracted forms present in works by such artists as Lyubov’ Popova and Piet Mondrian, the surreal visual language of paintings by artists like Salvador Dalí and Frida Kahlo, and the spontaneity and tactility advanced in works by Alexander Calder and Jackson Pollock, and other prominent Abstract Expressionist artists.
And as an extra treat, objects from MoMA’s Architecture and Design collection will also be on display. Visit the National Gallery of Victoria for ticketing information and booking availability.
