An Edvard Munch exhibition opens at Tate Modern today. Curator Nicholas Cullinan writes on the Tate blog that the exhibition looks "beyond the clichés of Munch as an angst-ridden and brooding Nordic artist who painted scenes of isolation and trauma" to focus on the neglected aspects of his often radical work, particularly his use of film and photography, and his "obsessive reworking of motifs."
Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye, curated by Nicholas Cullinan, curator of international modern art, Tate Modern,with Shoair Mavlian, assistant curator. Tate Modern, London, 28 June – 14 October.
