Exhibition of the Week: Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo, Norway

Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo, Norway: Synnøve Anker Aurdal 

The presentation features works from one of the most famous textile artists in Norway, Synnøve Anker Aurdal (1908-200) from the  Astrup Fearnley Collection alongside key pieces loaned from other collections in Norway, a number of which have rarely or never before been shown in public.
