BALTIC The Centre for Contemporary Art

About

Housed in a landmark industrial building on the south bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, BALTIC is the biggest gallery of its kind in the world – presenting a dynamic, diverse and international programme of contemporary visual art.

BALTIC provides an ever-changing calendar of exhibitions and activities that 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.
