Modern art challenges the notion that art must realistically depict the world, some artists experimented with the expressive use of color, non-traditional materials, and new techniques and mediums.
Astrup Fearnley Museum is beautifully situated by the Oslo fjord, the museum comprises of two separate buildings, connected together with bridges linking the roofs, with a beautiful canal in between. There is a tiny beach as well, and a tiny sculpture park. The larger building hosts the permanent exhibition, while the smaller hosts the temporary exhibitions. The map given to me at the time of entry was very useful in getting around.
The museum building itself fascinated me, modernism was prominent even on the building. Upon entering, the collections will steal all your attention away. If contemporary art and architecture intrigues you, this gallery is not to be missed.
Most of all I loved the way that this museum was designed since there one did not feel any tinge of claustrophobia as the space was utilized very well . In fact I loved the way the art pieces were exhibited and beneath every piece one could read the full history of the art work and about the person who had done it.
This is a gallery of global significance and one of the main tourist attractions of Norway. From my experience at this gallery, this should definitely be in your bucket list for Norway.
