Organised by The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris the exhibition "Being Modern: MoMA in Paris" draws together a superb and far-reaching representation of the highly important artworks that MoMA has acquired since its founding in 1929.
The Museum of Modern Art was one of the first museums devoted exclusively to the visual arts of the time.
Presented from 11 October 2017 to 5 March 2018, the exhibition housed in the Frank Gehry-designed Foundation Louis Vuitton, includes works of art ranging from the birth of modern art through trends and styles such as American abstraction, Pop art and Minimalism to the most contemporary art.
Among the artists on display include Max Beckmann, Alexander Calder, Paul Cézanne, Marcel Duchamp, Walker Evans, Gustav Klimt, René Magritte, Pablo Picasso, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Paul Signac and many others.
The exhibition features acknowledged masterpieces as well as less familiar yet highly significant artworks. A selection of rarely shown materials from MoMA’s archives, retracing the history of the Museum, will also be displayed into the galleries.
