MoMa: Inventing Abstraction

In 1912 a new form of expression was revealed to the world in the form of abstract art. A handful of artists debuted their new and exciting artwork across several european cities. On December 23rd the exhibition Inventing Abstraction began at the MoMa, in New York City. Running until April 15th this is an in depth look at the beginning years of abstract art and the wildly important transitional years that follow. There are over 350 pieces of art on display, including illustrated books, sculpture, choreography, painting, stained glass, needlepoint, and film. The definition of abstract may seem elusive to some, but this is a collection that will shed a great light on the collective beginnings of the movement.
