The Munch exhibition 

KODE Art Museums of Bergen exhibits one of the largest collections of Edvard Munch (1863-1944) paintings in the world. From an art historical perspective, the collection is unique because it exhibits works from all the major paradigms in Edvard Munch’s artistic career. Among others we have many of the important paintings from the “Frieze of Life” – a series of paintings where Munch depicts the psyche of the modern human being. Munch himself described the “Frieze of Life” as the major work of his oeuvre. Jealousy, Melancholy, Women in Three Stages, Evening on Karl Johan and By the Death Bed are all from the “Frieze of Life”, and they are all exhibited together in the Rasmus Meyer Collection in KODE 3.

Forces - Dyrdal Kvasbø Tingleff

Exceptional in scale, FORCES - Dyrdal Kvasbø Tingleff presents a wide selection of works dating from the 2000s to the present day, created by three internationally renowned Norwegian artists: Kari Dyrdal, Torbjørn Kvasbø and Marit Tingleff. All three work in large formats at the limits of physical possibility, yet they differ in their strategies for reaching that point: Dyrdal has replaced the loom with a computer, using her practical experience to explore digital textiles. Kvasbø fires his huge tubular sculptures in self-built, wood-fired kilns. Tingleff blurs the boundary between plates and painting in clayware that explores familiar forms on an unfamiliar scale.

The Astrup exhibition

Nikolai Astrup (1880-1928) is one of Norway’s most renowned and beloved artists. He distinguished himself as a painter and printer and is above all known for his wild and lush landscapes and depictions of traditional life in Vestlandet (west Norway). Like J.C. Dahl nearly one hundred years earlier, Astrup helped shape the way we view Vestlandet and, in fact, the whole country. At KODE 4.
