Time Out says

The NGV's major winter exhibition features more than 200 seminal works from New York's Museum of Modern Art

Due to popular demand, the NGV has just made it easier for you to catch this blockbuster exhibition in its final weeks: the gallery will open early, at 8.30am, every day from September 22, and additional after hours sessions have been added for October 4 and 7.

To put it lightly, this is huge. 

Melbourne is the (temporary) home of masterpieces by Salvador Dalí, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, Vincent van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Mark Rothko... the list goes on. They're on loan from New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) – which, if you're even mildly interested in 20th and 21st century art, is a gallery that needs no introduction. 

"This exciting exhibition will showcase an unparalleled collection of modern and contemporary art and design," says Tony Ellwood, NGV director. "We are delighted to be working with MoMA to bring such an extraordinary and diverse selection of works to Melbourne." 

Many of these works have never been seen in Australia before, and the exhibition is exclusive to Melbourne, taking up the entire ground floor of NGV International.
