Bjarne Melgaard – Works from the Astrup Fearnley Collection

Bjarne Melgaard has already achieved a unique position in Norwegian and international art with his expressive paintings, drawings and sculptures. Melgaard’s distinctive style and provocative themes have made ​​him a controversial yet highly respected artist. The exhibition shows works from the past 19 years and represents all periods of Melgaard’s oeuvre.

Astrup Fearnley Museet rotates on a regular basis the works on display from the collection. With this solo exhibition in the collection, we initiate an a new exhibition series in which we’ll present and highlight some of the most important artists in the collection. These exhibitions will be shown in Building 2: The Collection, and will have a duration of three months. Members of the Art Club are invited to the exhibition openings which are always held the evening before the exhibition opens to the public.

Curators: Gunnar B. Kvaran and Therese Möllenhoff

The next exhibition in the collection will be an exhibition with works by R.B. Kitaj, opening February 28th.
