AGWA SIGNS MAJOR EXHIBITION DEAL WITH MOMA
AGWA signs major exhibition deal with MoMA - Art Collector
|21 June 2011 | Stefani Carboni has secured a major coup for the Art Gallery of Western Australia, signing a three-year exhibition deal with New York’s Museum of Modern Art. |
AGWA and MoMA will present six exhibitions together, beginning June 2012 with and exhibition titled Picasso to Warhol: Twelve Modern Masters.
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.
The deal is part of AGWA’s Great Collections of the World series, which saw the museum bring Peggy Guggenheim’s collection to Perth last year.
Carboni says: “Beginning with the innovative European artists of the 1880s, the MoMA collection contains an unparalleled selection of major artists and movements to this day. The opportunity to bring such high-calibre exhibitions to Perth, and Australia, was one we could not pass up.”
