Music design exhibition at MoMA
4 Aug 2014

New York's Museum of Modern Art (often simply called MoMa) is set to present an exhibition about designs related to music starting this autumn.

The design of things like instruments, devices that play music, sheet music, record covers, posters and more will be explored in this event, beginning October 18th.

Taking place in the Philip Johnson Architecture and Design Galleries, located on the famous New York City museum's third floor, it will be in place for more than a year, until November 1st 2015.

'Making Music Modern: Design for Eye and Ear' will display objects from the Museum of Modern Art's own collection.

It has been organised by the MoMA Department of Architecture and Design's Juliet Kinchin and Luke Baker.

Meanwhile, many art lovers are sure to be aware that Matisse: the Cut Outs is one of the biggest art shows in London at the moment, and will be in town until September 7th at Tate Modern  

They may not realise that this isn't their last chance to take in the show, however.

The display is going to head across the Atlantic, and open at MoMa, who co-organised it with Tate Modern, on October 12th.

Looking at the artist's famed cut-out works, the show will remain in the city until February 8th, giving New Yorkers and people visiting the exciting city a chance to explore some of Henri Matisse's later creations.

During his later years, Matisse made a lot of works using scissors and cut paper, and this work is the show's theme.

MoMa can be found on 53rd Street in New York City, one of the world's best known cities, and home to a wide range of museums and galleries.

It's normally open 10.30am to 5.30pm, with late opening on a Friday, when it closes at 8pm.ADNFCR-408-ID-801739844-ADNFCR
