The Astrup Fearnely Museum of Modern Art is a privately owned Contemporary Art gallery in Oslo, Norway. It was founded and opened to the public in 1993 and was funded by 2 philanthropic foundations established by decendants of the Fearnley shipping family, the Thomas Fearnley Foundation and the Heddy and Nils Astrup Foundation. The museum collaborates with international institutions, and produces exhibitions that travel worldwide. The museum created a stir in the international art world in 2002 when it purchased the American artist Jeff Koon's monumental sculpture in gilt porcelain of the pop star Michael Jackson with bubbles, his favourite chimpanzee, for USD 5.1m.
Since the architect and the customer wanted exposed concrete floors, SurfaPore C was the natural choice for its protection.
