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

To put it lightly, this is huge. 

In June 2018, Melbourne will become the (temporary) home of masterpieces by Salvador Dalí, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Vincent van Gogh, Mark Rothko... the list goes on. They'll be 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 will be exclusive to Melbourne, taking up the entire ground floor of NGV International.
