MORE than 400,000 peo­ple have at­tended the MoMA at NGV ex­hi­bi­tion, mak­ing it the sec­ond-most-at­tended tick­eted ex­hi­bi­tion in the gallery’s his­tory.

NGV di­rec­tor Tony Ell­wood said 404,034 peo­ple vis­ited the ex­hi­bi­tion, which cov­ered 130 years of mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary art, be­fore it closed this week.

“We are thrilled so many vis­i­tors en­joyed this in­ter­na­tional ex­clu­sive ex­hi­bi­tion, which brought some of the most im­por­tant works of art and de­sign from MoMA’s im­pres­sive col­lec­tion from the likes of Sal­vador Dali, Frida Kahlo, Ge­or­gia O’Ke­effe and Vin­cent van Gogh to Aus­tralia for the first time,’’ Mr Ell­wood said.

State Min­is­ter for Creative In­dus­tries, Martin Fo­ley, said such ex­hi­bi­tions were among the rea­sons tourists came to Vic­to­ria.

MoMA was a hit for the NGV.
