Founded by students from the KIT in 2002, Galleri Blunk is a non-profit gallery run by young local artists. The main goal of the gallery is to be an arena for art students and newly established artists to show their work to the local townsfolk. Galleri Bunk tries to stimulate meetings between contemporary art and the general public through several exhibitions and events during the year, showcasing different kinds of art, from visual to audio, installations to paintings, photography to printmaking. With its fresh and off-beat atmosphere, Galleri Blunk is one of the most important actors on the local art scene.
Kunsthall Trondheim is a space for contemporary art in central Trondheim offering exhibitions, performances, film screenings and lectures. Its aim is to implement a new arena and laboratory for contemporary art, engaging in collaborations with other institutions and new artistic productions. The gallery hopes that this will include research and working periods with the artists to produce publications and presentations at Kunsthall Trondheim and at other venues.
