Edvard Munch and modern media at the Tate Modern

The Modern Eye is on show until 14 October

Edvard Munch’s engagement with modern media, such as photography and film, is the central theme of this travelling show organised by the Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the Munch Museum, Oslo, in association with Tate Modern. Around 60 paintings will be displayed along with 50 of the artist’s own photographs and films. “The attention given to Munch’s paintings has tended to occlude his engagement with other media,” says Nicholas Cullinan, Tate Modern’s curator of international modern art, “but this exhibition aims to show how film and photography influenced his painting and vice versa.”
