The Royal Academy is temporarily closed until further notice – the safety of our valued visitors, loyal Friends and staff is our highest priority.

Tickets purchased for exhibitions and events can be refunded; simply call the RA box office on 0207 300 8090 or tickets@royalacademy.org.uk.

The RA is an independent charity and we don’t receive revenue funding from the government so we are reliant upon the support of visitors, donors, sponsors, and the loyal Friends of the Royal Academy. If you wish to donate the cost of your exhibition or event ticket instead of requesting a refund, you would be helping to support the RA – thank you!

Tracey Emin took an interest in Munch from a young age: “I’ve been in love with this man since I was eighteen”.Throughout her career, Emin has been drawn to Munch’s expressionism and shares his concern with exploring the complexity of the human psyche.

As early as 1998, Emin referenced Munch in both the title and location of the film work HOMAGE TO EDVARD MUNCH AND ALL MY DEAD CHILDREN, which opens with a naked Emin curled in a foetal position on a wooden jetty on the edge of the Oslo Fjord in Asgardstrand where Munch painted several well-known works. This exhibition will reveal the way in which Munch has been a constant inspiration and will showcase Emin’s wide-ranging skills as an artist.

Exhibition organised by the Munch Museum, Oslo, Norway, in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts.
