Info
Brought to you by CrossCulture XC presents MUNCH 150 Hailed as a “once-in-a-lifetime show” Global interest was huge – not least as a result of one of his four The Scream paintings having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million. Many know Edvard Munch as the man who painted The Scream, but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived.

Munch 150 was co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. With 220 paintings on show, it brought together the greatest number of Munch’s key works in one place.

Once again XC bring to you, here in Nairobi, behind-the-scenes footage to show some of the process of putting the exhibition together — as well as providing an in-depth biography of a man who lived from the mid-19th century right through to the German occupation of Norway in the Second World War. Special guests will also offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow. Munch 150: A superb show and a fantastic event film.
The 90-minute film provides a Full High Definition walkthrough of the exhibit, in depth commentary about featured pieces and a “behind the scenes” look at the process of putting the exhibition together.

The screening with be followed by a conversation with local Kenyan artist Shabu Mwangi whose work is evocative of Munch’s subject matter and style.

Tickets: Ksh 2,500
