MOMA MAGNET TO 400,000
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.
