Five temporary public art works in Midtbyen

Prosjekt 2021 brings together NTNU Health and Trondheim kommune to explore the relationship between quality of life and cultural experience in the heart of Trondheim over summer 2021.

Artists Anna Ida Pezzot, Tobias Liljedahl, Anne Helga Henning, Pål Bøyesen, Ana Dunjic, and Qianhui Qian have been selected to create temporary artworks in public space that respond to or express in part how the COVID-19 pandemic has shaped our lives.

The five artworks are situated in five different locations in Midtbyen and are free and open to the public from June – August 2021.

Due to restrictions you have to book your ticket in advance.
For bookings and detailed information on time and place, please see the description of each art project.
