Baltic, Gateshead Quays, Gateshead, NE8 3BA – Visit Now

The Baltic gallery, Newcastle is housed in a landmark industrial building on the banks of the River Tyne in Gateshead – only the south and north facades of the original 1950s building were retained during its restoration. The gallery has no permanent collection, choosing instead to curate a year-long programme of international, contemporary art. There are four, diverse spaces on offer, along with a performance space – adding up to 3000sqm of arts space across the Baltic’s six floors. Since its opening in July 2002, the gallery has played host to 186 different exhibitions – a rapidly changing programme that ensures there’s always something intriguing on.
