This year the collection is relocating to the ground floor of the museum, where it will become a permanent feature. The sizeable Andy Warhol After Munch series, permanently filling one-third of the allotted space, will follow suit. The remainder of the exhibited works from the collection will vary from year to year.

Recent acquisitions are in focus this year, and one of the exhibition rooms showcases the confrontation between Morten Viskum’s intrusive self-portrait in wax as the clown-painted gunman behind the July 22. terror and the powerful gaze of the Norwegian muskox in Sverre Malling’s large drawing. Accompanying this meeting, are political works from the 1970s by Kjartan Slettemark and Morten Juvet.

The collection also includes works by several young photographers with ties to Vestfold county and works by Behzad Farazollahi and Geir Moseid are shown alongside five newly acquired works by Ingrid Eggen. A separate space is assigned to Odd Nerdrum´s paintings. The foundation, which owns the collection, acquired three works by Nerdrum in 2014-2015, and one of these are shown with other paintings by him on loan to the museum.

Only one historical work has been given a place in this presentation – the newly acquired landscape by Jacob Munch (1776–1839) from Nøtterøy island. Painted as early as around 1820, it is one of the oldest known paintings from Vestfold.
