Director of the MUNCH Museum Stein Olav Henrichsen congratulated the work.
AD_VENT – The art of waiting – is an untraditional advent calendar that offers unique artistic experiences in public spaces.
One of the current stars of the Norwegian music scene has been allowed to use Munch’s “muratelier” as a sounding board for AD_VENT 2020. The virtuoso instrumentalist is known throughout Europe for their complex and beautiful sound structures and for their unique “open sound”. Many collaborative projects have led to Spellemann Prizes and scholarships – despite this music being rather out of the box. It transcends most musical concepts such as jazz, philharmonic music, rock, and film music.
Stars are also the inspiration for the visual artist who will decorate this pearly gate. This Norwegian artist has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and won awards in London for their repetitive musical structures.
Edvard Munch’s studio has long been closed due to work on upgrading the lower floor. The work was completed at the end of September 2021.
