Some of the world's most iconic works of art are headed to NGV in a major exhibition featuring pieces from New York's seminal MoMA gallery.
The exhibition will feature some of the most seminal contemporary artists in history including Paul Cézanne, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Edward Hopper, Jeff Koons, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Lyubov Popova, Mark Rothko and Vincent van Gogh.
Slated to present over 150 masterpieces, the exhibition will take a multi-disciplinary approach and showcase works never before seen in Australia. It is the largest instalment of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series ever, for the first time traversing the entire ground floor of NGV International.
The exhibition will explore the emergence and development of major art movements and represent more than 130 years of radical artistic innovation. It will also reflect the wider technological, social and political developments that transformed society over the twentieth century, and which contributed to the formation of our twenty-first century globalised world.
Masterworks from MoMA will be on display at NGV International from June 8 2018 – October 7 2018.
