Major MoMA exhibition hits Australia

 Recently I visited Perth on business and during the weekend dropped into the Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters exhibition. This exciting new series has a selection of great artworks loaned by New York’s iconic Museum of Modern Art, known as MoMA in an exclusive for AGWA and Perth. Included are masterpieces such as Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans, Pablo Picasso’s Painter and Model, Henri Matisse’s Goldfish and Sculpture, Piet Mondrian’s Trafalgar Square and a piece sure to evoke impassioned debate – a shovel signed by Marcel Duchamp, entitled In Advance of the Broken Arm.

Together, this group transformed the art and culture of the twentieth century. In order to convey their outstanding achievements, each artist is represented with a group of key works, many of which are on show for the first time in Australia, and rarely seen outside MoMA. This is a powerful and exciting show of the most breathtaking and significant treasures of modern art.

Check it out, worth a visit
