The National Gallery
In 2013 all of Norway will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863–1944), one of the towering figures of modern art.
The main event during the sesquicentennial is the exhibition “Munch 150”, which will be co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum. This exhibition is the most ambitious presentation of Munch’s art ever, and with 220 paintings it will display the greatest number of Munch’s key works in modern times. Highlights of the exhibition include near-complete reconstructions of The Frieze of Life (1902) and The Reinhardt Frieze (1906–1907). One of the aims of the exhibition is to inspire visitors to discover “their own Munch” as an ever experimenting, innovative, and relevant artist.
Curators: Nils Ohlsen, Mai Britt Guleng and Jon Ove Steihaug
