Her Majesty The Queen opened the exhibition Munch/Warhol and the Multiple Image at CerModern, Ankara, during King Harald and Queen Sonja's state visit to Turkey.

Andy Warhol and Edvard Munch, two extraordinary artists of the 20th century, got together in Ankara when the Turkish capital's CerModern museum unveiled its newest exhibition.



It is hard to imagine an odder couple than the Existentialist-Expressionist Munch (1863-1944) and the detached, dispassionate Warhol (1928-1987). Yet the show “reveals remarkable affinities between the two unusually prolific and inventive artists,” the show's organizers said in a press release earlier this month.

Comprised of a 30-piece selection from both artists, the “Munch|Warhol” exhibition offers a close examination of four motifs in Munch's lithographic prints and their reformulation in a series of prints Warhol created in 1984.

Timed to coincide with “Munch 150,” a yearlong international celebration marking the 150th anniversary of the Norwegian artist's birth, “Munch|Warhol” will run for two months at CerModern, which has an area of 11,500 square meters.
Queen Sonja arrived to the exhibition together with King Harald accompanied by Turkish President Abdullah Gul and his wife Hayrünisa.

The opening also hosted many heads of missions including ambassaors of Japan, Georgia, Afghanistan, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, Lebanon, Albania, Jordan, Korea, the Netherlands, Greece, Switzerland and charg d’affairs of Israel, the Philippines and Thailand.

In her opening speech Queen Sonja said “During the last 2 years, I have had the pleasure of opening several exhibitions with works by Munch – like The Modern Eye in Paris, London and in Oslo. These exhibitions received almost 1 million visitors if we, in addition, include the Frankfurt show.”

“This year we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Edvard Munch’s birth. In Norway, this is a nationwide celebration, and the two main exhibitions in Oslo have been seen by almost half a million people. Quite an impressive figure in a country with 5 million inhabitants? I greatly appreciate this excellent contribution to the celebration here in Ankara with original works by Edvard Munch and Andy Warhol,” the Queen said.
