Collection: Edvard Munch: Trembling Earth

 

Clark Art Institute

JUNE 10, 2023–OCTOBER 15, 2023

Edvard Munch’s art is noted for its vivid depictions of deeply human feelings. However, an equally important role in his art is played by his fascination with nature, which is now being addressed for the first time in an exhibition. “Edvard Munch: Trembling Earth” is devoted to the scientific and philosophical influences on his work and opens up his œuvre as a resonant space for today’s climate crisis. On the one hand, Edvard Munch viewed nature as a cyclically self-renewing power; on the other, he saw it as a reflection of his own inner turmoil. Munch developed a pantheistic understanding of nature, which he projected onto the forests and coasts of Norway. The dramatic weather depicted in his paintings is especially striking in light of the current climate crisis.
On show are about 90 works loaned from museums around the world, including Munchmuseet in Oslo, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Dallas Museum of Art, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Museum Folkwang in Essen and the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal. 
This exhibition was co-organised by the Museum Barberini in Potsdam, the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown and MUNCH in Oslo.
