BALTIC presents a site-specific collaborative commission by artist Sara Barker and Ryder Architecture. Working with a combination of painting, welding and jewellery-making techniques, Barker draws out unexpected properties in material with a sculptural fluidity and lightness.
We offer many opportunities for schools and colleges, from group visits and artist-led sessions to work based placements within our Learning team.

A Voyage of Growth and Discovery
The UK premiere of a major collaborative installation between renowned American artists Mike Kelley and Michael Smith.
A Voyage of Growth and Discovery sees the man-child Baby IKKI, a character developed by Smith for over thirty years, navigate the infamous Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert. Alone in his journey amongst thousands of revellers, IKKI negotiates the primal elements of fire, water, earth and wind. A six-channel video installation replaying IKKI’s 'voyage' is enveloped by a fantasy environment evoking that of the festival. At its centre stands a 30ft incarnation of IKKI himself.
A Voyage of Growth and Discovery was co-produced by West of Rome, Los Angeles and Sculpture Center, New York and is curated by Emi Fontana.
