As if I needed another reason to enjoy living in Perth; the Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA), in June, will be the only place in Australia where you will be able to feast your eyes on the Picasso to Warhol exhibition kindly lent out from New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMa).

The Exhibit
And what a visual treat this will be. Featuring over 100 masterpieces from 14 modern art icons including the named Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso in addition to other greats such as Henri Matisse, Constantin Brancusi, Piet Mondrian, Fernand Leger, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio de Chirico,  Joan Miro, Alexander Calder, Jasper Johns and Jackson Pollock.

Made possible through the $6m funding support from the 2011/12 State Budget this exhibition marks the start of some truly exciting exhibitions at the AGWA firmly cementing Perth's future as a city with culture.
