Munchmuseet on the Move is a four-year, off-site curatorial project of contemporary art. The aim of the project is to continue and develop the work of the Stenersen Museum in Vika (1994-2015), now part of the Munch Museum. Munchmuseet on the Move consists of two parts: a series of contemporary art commissions, taking place in the area between the current Munch Museum at Tøyen and the new museum, currently under construction on the waterfront of Bjørvika; and the display of works from the Stenersen Collection at a temporary venue in collaboration with Kunsthall Oslo.
