The MoMA Series is an exciting collaboration between the Art Gallery of WA (AGWA) and the renowned Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
The partnership is an Australian exclusive for AGWA and was developed through AGWA’s Director, Stefano Carboni’s strong New York connections.
In an evolution of the Gallery’s Great Collections of the World series, AGWA and MoMA will present six world-class exhibitions over three years from June 2012 through to mid 2015. The Art Gallery of WA will be the only Australian venue for each of the six exhibitions.
The series launched in June 2012 with Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters, a stunning display of works from fourteen of the most iconic modern artists including Picasso, Matisse, Pollock and Warhol.
The five following exhibitions are drawn from MoMA’s extensive collection and showcase a significant selection of works from each of MoMA’s curatorial departments including design and photography. Each exhibition in the Series differs both thematically and by medium, providing a highly varied series that will engage audiences time and again.
This exhibition is organised by The Museum of Modern Art, New York in collaboration with The Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth.
