Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
An exhibition and collaboration increasing the visibility and presence of neurodivergent artists in contemporary art.
Residential is an exhibition by Project Art Works developed in collaboration with Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. The culmination of a year-long project of awareness raising and relationship building in the North East of England with Baltic’s staff, neurodiverse communities, artists and caregivers, Residential presents brings together research and learning from the collaboration.
A vibrant, powerful and celebratory installation of large-scale paintings, spaces for making, and verbal and nonverbal conversations, the exhibition draws on Project Art Works’ archive of over five thousand physical works to present over fifty works across Baltic’s generous ground floor gallery space. A new film by Project Art Works reveals the subtle and expansive nature of speaking and non-speaking communication — and alongside the exhibition, a studio and making area hosts a series of collaborative interactions that bring different people, audiences and artists together in creative production.
