Length: 1.8 mi • Est. 51 m
Discover the cutting edge of Norway's innovative design and contemporary art on a tour that blends museums and galleries. Innovative design is a hallmark of Norway, as it is elsewhere in Scandinavia, but Norwegian artists have long been groundbreakers in contemporary painting and graphic art. With this history, it's no wonder that Oslo should have more than its share of extraordinary art museums showing works from the Modern and Contemporary periods. Two entire museums, one a newly completed work of art itself, show off contemporary art, while a third features Modernists and their immediate predecessors. Between these three museums are private art galleries and shops showcasing both art and design. At the end is a fourth museum that provides a meeting place for architecture and design in a re-purposed building that has won its own design awards. It's a heady mix that explores the cutting edge with a nod to the traditions that came before.Show more
