BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art creates and produces exhibitions, activities and opportunities that explore understanding of the world through diverse contemporary art by artists from across the world. Located on Gateshead quayside, we have 2,600 square metres of exhibition space dedicated to the art and artists of today and tomorrow.
We welcome visitors free of charge, all year round to experience art, talks, performance and activities in an accessible building. We have been visited by over 8 million since opening in July 2002. Beyond our bricks, BALTIC connects and exchange in an on-going basis with our local communities, individuals and groups exploring creativity, social connections and shared hospitality.
