This autumn and winter you can get to know Estonia's great painter Konrad Mägi at Lillehammer Art Museum. He is widely unknown, but in his home country he has the same position as Edvard Munch has in Norway.

Mägi’s art is marked by colourful, audacious and modern paintings from Estonia, Italy, France and not at least Norway. The exhibition will be on display from November 26, 2022-2. April 2023.


From spring to autumn 2022, the museum presents the exhibition Stepping out! Female Identities in Chinese Contemporary Art. Never before has an exhibition presented female Chinese contemporary art on this scale. It is a Chinese exhibition about history, future, traditions and modern women.


Lillehammer Art Museum is one of the few art museums in Norway that can present the country's art from the beginning of the 19th century to our time with works by Johan Christian Dahl, Hans Gude, Frits Thaulow, Edvard Munch and Harriet Backer.
