Picasso to Warhol: fourteen Modern Masters

16 June - 3 December 2012

We have a whole website dedicated to this series. For full exhibition and program details visit www.momaseries.com.au

Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters is the exciting launch exhibition of the Australian exclusive partnership between AGWA and MoMA. Featuring over 120 works by fourteen of modern art’s most iconic artists including Matisse, Picasso, Pollock and Warhol, this exhibition presents a world-class introduction to the figures who redefined the very idea of art.

Savour some well-known favourites such as Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans and discover some new friends, such as Léger’s Big Julie. Encompassing a wide range of art movements including Cubism, Abstract Expressionism and Pop art, Picasso to Warhol will leave you inspired and invigorated with a renewed sense of wonder at what modern art can be.

Ranging from Picasso to Warhol, as suggested by the title, the exhibition will also include celebrated works by Henri Matisse, Constantin Brancusi, Piet Mondrian, Fernand Léger, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio De Chirico, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Louise Bourgeois, Jasper Johns, Jackson Pollock and Romare Bearden.

The five following exhibitions will draw from MoMA’s extensive collection and showcase a significant selection of works from each of MoMA’s curatorial departments including design and photography.

Founded in 1929 as an educational institution, The Museum of Modern Art is dedicated to being the foremost museum of modern art in the world. With extraordinary exhibitions and the world’s finest collection of modern and contemporary art, MoMA is dedicated to the conversation between the past and the present, the established and the experimental, and to help visitors understand and enjoy the art of our time.
