On Friday 3 August our Studio Arts and Media students were given the opportunity to experience the MoMA exhibition at the NGV International, thanks to a grant provided by Krystyna Campbell-Pretty and the Campbell-Pretty family. Students experienced the MoMA exhibition showcasing 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art. Some pivotal artists included; Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, Rene Magritte, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
The artworks shown in the MoMA exhibition were iconic and exceptional and to see these artworks in real life, inspired students to rethink their own perceptions of Art and how to implement new ideas into their own personal studio process.
Students listened attentively to Robert, a highly entertaining employee from the NGV International, who explained various reasons as to why some of the artworks were made and how the history and culture of the time influenced the production artworks.
All students represented Geelong Lutheran College in a positive and respectful manner and it was an enjoyable excursion. Thanks both to Ms. Jill Lang- Mohr and Mrs. Samantha Welker for their support and ensuring a successful experience.
Looking forward to our next Art adventure!
