This week’s Apollo Art Diary highlights new museums that are scheduled to open later this year.
Edvard Munch bequeathed more than 45,000 objects to the city of Oslo on his death in 1944, including some 1,000 paintings and 5,000 drawings, and more than 15,000 prints. This summer, the city is expected to open a new home for the museum founded on this bequest; with 11 galleries across 13 floors, comprising more than 26,000 sq m of exhibition space, the towering structure by Estudio Herreros architects is estimated to have cost around £250m. One of the largest museums devoted to one artist in the world, it will also pair Munch with other modern and contemporary artists in its programme of exhibitions.
