Lynda Benglis - group show "MoMA AT NGV 130 YEARS OF MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ART" @ National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia.
The National Gallery of Victoria, in partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, New York, will present "MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art" as the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition in 2018. MoMA at NGV will provide a unique survey of the Museum’s iconic collection. Consisting of approximately 200 key works, arranged chronologically into eight thematic sections, the exhibition will trace the development of art and design from late-nineteenth-century urban and industrial transformation, through to the digital and global present.
Developments in art from the 1960s, from Minimalism through postmodernism, will be explored with the work of Roy Lichtenstein, Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol, Lynda Benglis, Sol LeWitt, Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman and Keith Haring, among others. Significant works of late twentieth-century and early twenty-first century art, including major pieces by Kara Walker, Rineke Dijkstra, Andreas Gursky, Olafur Eliasson, Huang Yong Ping, Mona Hatoum, El Anatsui and Camille Henrot, will foreground ideas that inform much contemporary art, such as those around cultural and national identity, and mobility in a globalised world.
Open until October 7th, 2018.
