Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters
The Gallery together with the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) will present six world-class exhibitions over three years. The exciting partnership will launch its first, large-scale exhibition entitled Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters in June 2012. The launch exhibition will feature over 100 modern art masterpieces by 14 of the most iconic artists of the 20th century.
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.
There are just seven weeks to go before the Art Gallery of WA must pack up and send home Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters, the already successful launch exhibition of the exclusive series from The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
To celebrate the remaining weeks of Picasso to Warhol, the Gallery has planned many special events and activities. These include:
