This summer the city's two pre-eminent art museums, the Art Gallery of NSW and Museum of Contemporary Art, join forces to present two inspired collections exclusive to Sydney.
America - painting a nation (8 November 2013 - 9 February 2014) is the most expansive survey of American painting presented in Australia. Over 80 works cover more than 200 years of art, history and experience. This exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW features artists including Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Georgia O'Keeffe, James McNeil Whistler, Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent.
War Is Over! (if you want it): Yoko Ono (15 November 2013 - 23 February 2014) at the MCA is Yoko Ono's first major solo survey in Australia spanning five decades of practice. The exhibition title comes from a text work by Ono and her husband John Lennon that first appeared in 1969 across public billboards in twelve cities worldwide.
