About Kunsthall Trondheim

Kunsthall Trondheim is a contemporary art institution with international focus. Kunsthall Trondheim strengthens the local art scene, and is the largest arena for contemporary art in Trondheim city and the region of Trøndelag. In addition to exhibitions, the programme includes on a weekly basis a variety of events: concerts, performances, film screenings, lectures and readings.

The plan for establishing an institution for contemporary art in Trondheim stretches back more than ten years, and is a result of the engagement of the people in the city, the city administration and politicians. Since 2013 Kunsthall Trondheim has been run as a pilot project by former director Helena Holmberg, and on the initiative of the city of Trondheim and the county of Sør-Trøndelag. Kunsthall Trondheim is supported by the Art Council Norway.

In the period of 2017-19 Kunsthall Trondheim will focus on these areas: issues of sustainability, climate and ecology, international contemporary art, art from non-Western perspectives, art that thematizes normative gender roles and sexual identity and highlight younger artists, especially with connection to the region of Trøndelag.
