Munch 150, co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum (both in Oslo), is already garnering worldwide interest. The cinema event will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the process of putting the exhibition together, as well as an in-depth biography of the artist. Norwegian and international guests will offer their expert insight.
The three-part EXHIBITION series concludes on October 20 with Vermeer and Music—The Art of Love and Leisure. The screening takes place at the National Gallery in London, where audiences will see a unique perspective on the masterpieces of Johannes Vermeer. Each event screening, hosted by art historian Tim Marlow, ventures beyond the gallery with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
