Abstract Expressionist New York

I am a total art nerd and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is not only by far my very most favorite museum in NYC, but it is absolutely one of my most favorite museums in the world. An invitation to last night's private viewing plus Q&A session with the curators of the Abstract Expressionist New York exhibition, which began on October 3 and will run through April 25th, 2011, was well beyond exciting. The survey draws from MoMA's renowned and unmatched collection to display a chronological narrative of the true breakthrough of American artists on the art scene. Starting in the beginning of the 1940s and lasting into the 60s, you can sense the dialogue between the works of art and how each artist looked to one another to really create and define the revelatory movement. With some of the most famous pieces from some of the most influential artists of all time, this presentation is an awesome representation of the first avant-garde movement to place New York City at the forefront of international modern art. I highly, highly, highly suggest visiting it today.
