The Tate Modern (London, United Kigndom) hosts Edvard Munch. The Modern Eye, an exhibition with almost 140 of his works, including some 60 paintings, 30 works on paper and 50 vintage photographs. The show also reunites a number of films and one of the artist's very rare sculptures, Edvard Munch, l'oeil modern, which throws new light on the work of this celebrated Norwegian painter (1863-1944) by showing how his interest in all the forms of representation.
The show also examines how Munch often repeated a single motif over a long period of time in order to re-work it, as can be seen in the different versions of his most celebrated works, such as The Sick Child 1885–1927 and Girls on the Bridge 1902–27.
Contrary to the received opinion that sees in Munch a nineteenth-century artist, tormented and reclusive, the exhibition shows that he was aware of the aesthetic debates of his time, engaged in a constant dialogue with the most contemporary forms of representation - photography, film and theatre.
The exhibition has been organised in close collaboration with the Munch Museum in Oslo. Most of the works come from there, though some have been loaned by the National Museum, Oslo, the Bergen Museum of Art and other collections abroad.
