MUNCH | WARHOL and the Multiple Image brings together two of the 20th century's most prolific and inventive printmakers - Norwegian Edvard Munch and American Andy Warhol. Co-curated by Dr. Patricia G. Berman and Pari Stave and organized in honor of the 150th anniversary of Munch's birth, the exhibition closely examines four graphic images produced by Munch at the turn of the century - The Scream, Madonna, The Brooch. Eva Mudocci, Self-Portrait - and later revisited by Andy Warhol in a little-known but extraordinary series of Day-Glo and pastel-hued prints from 1984.

  

The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) has developed an array of public programs related to the inimitable exhibition, on view at Scandinavia House through July 27, 2013. Programs include twice-monthly docent tours and a free audio guide of highlights; Art Afterhours - extended gallery hours with Nordic DJs; and numerous lectures and symposia with contemporary artists and experts in the field.
