Managed and programmed by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, the top floor gallery, BALTIC's project space offers artists and guest curators creative freedom to experiment and innovate, enabling them to stretch the boundaries of contemporary art practice. 

Appointed in November 2011, Professor Christine Borland is an artist with an established international reputation who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1997. Her practice explores art, ethics, medical humanities and bio-politics.

Through an existing partnership between BALTIC and Northumbria University, the BxNU Institute of Contemporary Art will also be present at BALTIC 39. Students will have the opportunity to develop their practice in a supportive, stimulating environment of leading academic, postgraduate researchers and internationally renowned artists. 

Northumbria University is offering its students an opportunity to work and learn within this unique creative environment by relocating the Third Year undergraduate and MA Fine Arts teaching and research to BALTIC 39.

BALTIC 39 is home to 32 studios, of which Newcastle City Council provide 25 quality, affordable, non-residential workspaces. These studios help support practitioners within the contemporary art and creative industries to grow, develop and sustain their practices.
