BALTIC The Centre for Contemporary Art

About

With a history that stretches back much further than its 2002 opening, the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, housed in a completely rennovated flour mill on the south bank of the River Tyne, Gateshead, is the biggest gallery of its kind in the world.

The BALTIC aim to present a dynamic, diverse and international programme of contemporary visual art, with an ever-changing calendar of exhibitions and activities designed to give a unique and compelling insight into contemporary artistic practice.

BALTIC'S programme ranges from blockbuster exhibitions to innovative new work and projects created by artists working within the local community. Visitors can experience innovative and provocative new art, relax, have fun, learn and discover fresh ideas, and complete their visit with a relaxing coffee overlooking the magnificent quayside.

Don't forget to check their website or ask at an info point when you arrive for information about events and activities taking place like Preview Parties, Family Tours, Toddler Tuesdays, Exhibition Explorer Packs for kids and all sorts of themed adult events.
