What is BALTIC?

 

Housed in a landmark industrial building on the south bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, BALTIC is a major international centre for contemporary art. BALTIC has no permanent collection, providing instead an ever-changing calendar of exhibitions and events that give a unique and compelling insight into contemporary artistic practice. BALTIC’s dynamic, diverse and international programme ranges from blockbuster exhibitions to innovative new work and projects created by artists working within the local community.

BALTIC is a place where visitors can experience innovative and provocative new art, relax, have fun, learn and discover fresh ideas.

BALTIC is an international leader in the ambitious and distinctive presentation, commissioning, development and communication of contemporary visual art

BALTIC presents a changing programme of exhibitions across 4 diverse gallery spaces. BALTIC does not have a permanent collection.

BALTIC exists to enrich people’s lives with a programme that deepens their knowledge, understanding and love of contemporary visual art while increasing and broadening its impact.

BALTIC was founded with funding from The National Lottery through Arts Council England, Gateshead Council, Northern Rock Foundation, the European Regional Development Fund and One NorthEast, and receives continued support from Arts Council England and Gateshead Council.

BALTIC presents an increasingly ambitious, innovative and wide-ranging programme, which includes exhibitions by established ‘big name’ artists as well as smaller scale shows which offer opportunities to emerging artists.
