The Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art moved into a brand new building at Tjuvholmen on 29 September 2012.
The new museum building is designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano. It consists of two buildings: one for the museum's own collection and one for rotating exhibitions.
As the new space allows Astrup Fearnley to present works from its collection on a permanent basis, artists such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Charles Ray, Richard Prince, Matthew Barney, Bruce Nauman, Robert Gober and Cindy Sherman will be on permanent display right in the centre of Oslo.
The new museum is beautifully situated at the tip of Tjuvholmen, with the Oslo Fjord and Tjuvholmen Sculpture Park as its closest neighbours.
