Enjoy a quick presentation of Edvard Munch. Between the Clock and the Bed before you enter the exhibition. During a 20 minute session we will present themes from the exhibition and the artworks on display. After the presentation, a museum professional will be available for questions in the exhibition halls until 2 pm.
What are your true colours? Is your face green with jealousy and covered in feathers, or blue with melancholy, like a plastic recycleables bag? Use simple materials and your own imagination to design your own mask in the garden at Ekely.
Jennie Bringaker demonstrates how to use objects like buttons, tape, stockings and plastic bags to create strange, funny or scary masks. Perhaps there are hidden treasures in your cabinets or drawers that can be affixed to your new face? The masks can be used to play with or as a fashion accessory. You can hide behind it, or maybe use it to show the world who you really are.
Bring a picnic basket and enjoy a lovely Sunday in Edvard Munch's garden!
Moonrise. Marlene Dumas & Edvard Munch provides a unique opportunity to experience works by two of the world’s most prominent artists. In the process of curating the exhibition, Dumas has studied hundreds of paintings, prints and drawings in the Munch Museum’s collection. The selection of her own works for this exhibition are mainly from private collection, and rarely shown publicly.
The exhibition also contains selected works by Dumas’ colleague, Dutch artist René Daniëls. These three artists share a similar approach to painting and drawing, recognizing the importance of the transparent brushstroke and the unpainted canvas. According to Dumas, “René Daniëls taught me how to see Munch”. Through this exhibition, she gives us an opportunity to experience Munch the way she sees him as a painter.
