Welcome to Astrup Fearnley Museum

Founded in 1993, Astrup Fearnley Museet is one of Scandinavia’s most notable museums for contemporary art.

The museum holds the extensive Astrup Fearnley Collection, and presents changing exhibitions that draw on the collection as well as debut new commissions by artists from all over the world. The museum, designed by Renzo Piano, spans two buildings bisected by a canal, and is situated on the Oslofjord in the Tjuvholmen neighborhood of central Oslo, next to Tjuvholmen Sculpture Park.

The Astrup Fearnley Collection dates to the 1960s, and is one of Europe’s most comprehensive collections of international contemporary art. The collection does not concentrate on specific eras, styles or groups, but pays close attention to the work of a wide variety of artists. The museum maintains the vibrancy of the collection by regularly rehanging the exhibitions, placing the works in new constellations and contexts. The collection includes significant works by artists such as Matthew Barney, Paul Chan, Trisha Donnelly, Nicole Eisenman, Ida Ekblad, Félix González-Torres, Rachel Harrison, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Glenn Ligon, Sigmar Polke, Cindy Sherman, Børre Sæthre and Wolfgang Tillmans.
