Temporarily closed: Picasso 347

January 3–May 3, 2020

Unfortunately, starting 12 March, we will close the art center for four weeks as a measure to limit the risk of spreading the coronavirus (covid-19). We monitor the situation and follow advice from the Institute of Public Health closely.


The exhibition presents the remarkable series of etchings and engravings, the Picasso Suite 347, which consists of 347 works by Pablo Picasso (1881–1973). The works are among the last hand-signed etchings and engravings Picasso ever created, and has only been presented in its entirety once before, also then at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, in 1981. In addition to Suite 347, the exhibition will also present Picasso's work in the Government Quarter in Oslo, Norway.
