Paths to Abstraction {Reveiw}

We went to Sydney this weekend for the international soccer tournament.  It was fun - I'm not a soccer fan but the atmosphere was amazing! And as an added bonus I even got to see a couple of galleries... We hit the Art Gallery of NSW and saw the permanent collection - which has a fantastic breadth of movements and eras.  But we were really there for the temporary exhibition Paths to Abstraction... It was OK.... I was a little disappointed by the scope of the show but it was still very interesting!  I'm not sure it was worth the $20 but perhaps that's cause I've been spoilt enough to see some of Europe's leading galleries... Maybe not... Have you seen it? What did you think?
