Exhibitions

While world-class cultural attractions like BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art hold exhibitions from leading contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst and Yoko Ono, we’ve a wealth of smaller commercial and public galleries welcoming well-known and emerging contemporary artists to the area and displaying sought-after classical pieces from the greats.

The Laing is always worth a visit for its permanent collection which includes John Martin's breathtaking ‘The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah’ and William Holman Hunt's poignant painting of ‘Isabella and the Pot of Basil’, whilst the Biscuit Factory, the UK’s biggest commercial gallery, is the perfect place to start or expand your collection. Sunderland’s Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art brings new exhibitions from established and emerging artists to the region and is recognised as an essential stop on the itinerary of any art-lover.
