MoMA at The National Gallery of Victoria

Inside Look

Friday 8th June 2018

The National Gallery of Victoria will open their highly anticipated exhibition ‘MoMA at NGV‘ tomorrow! Produced in close collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art in New York, this exhibition brings together over 200 key works never seen in Australia before, and spans 130 years of modern and contemporary art and design.

We were granted exclusive access to the show earlier this month to shoot a very special little short film, as the NGV team prepared for their much anticipated Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition!

Every NGV exhibition is brought to life using paint colour by Dulux. For this show, exhibition designer Kathleen Duffy was keen to enhance MoMA’s iconic ‘white box’ galleries, selecting a palette of various Dulux whites, offset with bold blue accents, including ‘Natural White’, ‘Vivid White’, ‘Passionate Blue’ and ‘Sail Blue’.

The result is understated, yet transformative – and really does feel a little like visiting MoMA, on home soil!

MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art‘ opens to the public this Saturday, June 9th, and runs until October 7th.
