> DESCRIPTION

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.

"The launch exhibition will provide visitors with a wonderful opportunity to experience works by the world’s great modern artists, each represented by some of their best and most distinctive pieces. It’s an excellent introduction to the six-exhibition series," Stefano Carboni.

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.
