MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern And Contemporary Art

The National Gallery of Victoria, in partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presents MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art as the 2018 Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition. MoMA at NGV provides a unique survey of the Museum’s iconic collection. Consisting of over 200 key works, arranged chronologically into eight thematic sections, the exhibition traces the development of art and design from late-nineteenth-century urban and industrial transformation, through to the digital and global present.

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.

 

When: 9 June- 7 October

Where: The National Gallery of Victoria
