On the occasion of Tate’s exhibition Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye this symposium explores what made Munch such a quintessentially modern artist. Curators, art-historians, Munch experts and contemporary artists talk about different aspects of his practice and its significance today, from painting, film and photography to self-representation and the nature of the gaze.

Speakers include Angela Lampe, Clément Chéroux, Patricia Berman,  Mai Britt Guleng, Sue Prideaux and Tracey Emin.
