Museum 2 – Works from the Astrup Fearnley Collection
MUSEUM is an ongoing series of exhibitions in which broad selections of well-known and lesser-known works from the Astrup Fearnley Collection are being presented from different angles and perspectives.
The year 2001 exhibition is curated by museum curator Øystein Ustvedt and will include works by international, Nordic and Norwegian artists from the 1960s right up until the present, artists such as Francis Bacon, Andreas Gursky, Olav Chr. Jenssen, Donald Judd, R.B. Kitaj, Peter Land, Markus Lüperts, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, Mari Slaattelid, Vibeke Tandberg, Rachel Whiteread and others. The exhibition will also emphasize the way in which we as a museum choose to organize, display and contextualize art. Well-known phenomena such as The School of London will be explored as well as more periodical, thematic and individual presentations.
