Fall Diary / MoMa

Everyone always says that one of the best parts about living in New York is all the amazing things you can do here: visiting the parks, the museums, seeing new plays and shows, listening to live music, brunching and bar hopping, and so, so much more. If you’ve not even been reading along my blog for long, you already know I’m super into the arts, and that one of my favorite things to do in the city is visiting the museums. Yes, the Met is classic, the Guggenheim is the best, and the MoMa never ceases to surprise me.

I honestly hadn’t been to the MoMa since the Henri Matisse “Cut Outs” exhibition, so I was really looking forward to visiting again. Luckily, the museum currently has a show up of Picasso’s sculptures, appropriately named “Picasso Sculpture“. It’s an amazing exhibition, one that made me fall in love with both the MoMa and Picasso, all over again. It was such a thorough show: each gallery room displayed a new episode of his work, detailing different materials and processes he explored throughout the years. Read more about it here.

The whole exhibition was thoroughly impressive and mind-blowing, but, of course, I had a few favorite pieces…

Time and time again, the MoMa puts on astonishingly amazing shows – I can’t wait to see what they’ll have after Picasso.
