The Munch Museum (1)

I’m rather relieved that I hadn’t read Oliver Wainwright’s excellent, but possibly over-critical review of the new Munch Museum, before I had written mine for the Burlington Magazine (not out for a month at least). I realise I was maybe influenced by the pleasures of there being so much exhibition space, and didn’t see its architectural form as one of civic surveillance, which once one has viewed it that way is hard to escape. I don’t think it will stop the museum being very popular: great artist, good location, so much to see, different ways of interpreting him; certainly well worth the trip to Oslo.
