In 2017, we can look forward to exhibitions presenting Takashi Murakami, China's active contemporary art scene and become better acquainted with the Norwegian artist Matias Faldbakken. There will also be several lectures and special events in conjunction with our exhibition program.
MURAKAMI BY MURAKAMI
09.02. – 14.05.2017
Astrup Fearnley Museet will, as the first museum in Scandinavia, present an exhibition focusing on the world-famous Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. As an artist, filmmaker, collector, gallerist, activist, environmentalist and businessman, Takashi Murakami is the master, creator and orchestrator of his own universe. This exhibition entitled Murakami by Murakami dives into the multi-layered world of a figure whose notion of art embraces not just creating but also collecting, curating and merchandising, and who is concerned with society, the environment, his fellow artists and the art market.
01.06. – 10.09.2017
This summer, Astrup Fearnley Museet is delighted to present Chinese contemporary art from the Astrup Fearnley Collection! The exhibition will present pioneering artists including Ai Weiwei, Huang Yong Ping and Chen Zhen, in addition to a selection of artists born in the 1970s.
21.09.2017 – 28.01.2018
Astrup Fearnley Museet is proud to present an exhibition with the Norwegian artist Matias Faldbakken (b. 1973). In recent years, Faldbakken has received great attention and critical acclaim on the international art scene. His work deals with images, language and themes gathered from popular culture, and he is known for productions in which he deconstructs language and images, and creates sculptures reflecting both aggression and retreat.
Welcome to exciting art experiences in 2017at Astrup Fearnley Museet!
