MUNCH Triennale - The Machine Is Us

This ambitious group exhibition of contemporary art, displays works by 25 artists who, in different ways, reflect on how new technology affects us, both as individuals and as communities.

A majority of the works in the exhibition are commissions, including site-specific works that take the surroundings of MUNCH and its collection as a point of departure. Before entering the museum, visitors encounter a greenhouse, run on heat from datamining, in which different tulips are cultivated. In the lobby, a virtual reality environment allows people to travel back in time and view the landscape of Oslo around the museum before it became inhabited by human beings. Visitors could also experience Edvard Munch’s works in a new, virtual context, using a dedicated mobile app. Parabol Studio was responsible for the design of the information displayed on vinyls and signage in the exhibition space as well as around the museum - both inside and outside the building.
