In June 2012, the Art Gallery of Western Australia embarked on an exclusive exhibition series in partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA). This series brought over 400 works to Western Australia, 95% of which had never before been displayed in Perth.
The MoMA Series finished at the end of the Van Gogh, Dalí and Beyond exhibition on 2 December 2013.

Picturing New York:
Photographs from The Museum of Modern ArtClosed
Depicting the iconic New York that captivates the world’s imagination and the idiosyncratic details that define New Yorkers’ sense of home, this exhibition from MoMA’s extraordinary photography collection celebrates the city in all its vitality, ambition and beauty. Made by approximately 90 artists responding to the city as well as professionals on assignment, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Lewis Hine, Helen Levitt, Cindy Sherman, Alfred Stieglitz, and Weegee, over 150 works reveal the deeply symbiotic relationship between photography and the ‘city that never sleeps’ – New York. Both an exploration of the life of the city and a documentation of photography’s evolution throughout the twentieth century, Picturing New York celebrates the great and continuing tradition of capturing the grit and glamour of one of the world’s greatest urban centres.
