Visit Munch’s studio at Ekely

Munch had favourable working conditions at Ekely, with several outdoor studios and a winter studio, preserved to this day.

Today Ekely is run by Stiftelsen Edvard Munchs Atelier (SEMA) as a creative space for artists and the public. In Summer 2022 artist Helle Siljeholm will be in residence, working on a sculpture for the forthcoming MUNCH Triennale: The Machine Is Us.

The garden and the outdoor areas are availble to the public, with a new interactive experience. Here visitors can discover connections across time and space, between Munch’s former residence and the new public home of his artworks ar MUNCH.
