In a news release, the High Museum of Art in Midtown announced it will celebrate its ongoing partnership with the Museum of Modern Art in New York with the exhibition “Fast Forward: Modern Moments 1913››2013,” which opened with a gala last week.

The exhibit showcases 100 years of art from MoMA, exploring the development of modern and contemporary art by selecting key years in art history that represent watershed moments in the 20th century.

It will present about 100 works of art created during the years 1913, 1929, 1950, 1961 and 1988, as well as the art of today. The exhibition will examine the years prior to the start of World War I and the Great Depression, the lead-up to postwar American prosperity and the years preceding the Cuban Missile Crisis, the fall of the Berlin Wall and how artists responded to and were influenced by events on the world stage.

The exhibition also will present the works of contemporary artists Aaron Curry, Katharina Grosse and Sarah Sze, whose work extends themes first explored in the 20th century and updates them for the 21st century.“

Fast Forward: Modern Moments 1913››2013” will be one of the largest surveys of 20th-century art to ever be exhibited in the Southeast. Co-organized by the High and MoMA as part of the museums’ ongoing collaboration, the exhibition will be on view Saturday through Jan. 20.

It is organized by Jodi Hauptman, MoMA curator of drawings, and Samantha Friedman, MoMA curatorial assistant, in collaboration with David Brenneman, the High’s director of collections and exhibitions and Frances B. Bunzl Family curator of European art, and Michael Rooks, the High’s Wieland family curator of modern and contemporary art. “Fast Forward: Modern Moments 1913››2013” will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
