Wed – Sun, 10am – 6pm
Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
Located on Gateshead quayside, Baltic consists of 2,600 square metres of exhibition space dedicated to the art and artists of today and tomorrow. With four floors of art to explore alongside stunning views, it welcomes visitors free of charge, all year round to experience art, talks, performance and activities in an accessible building.
Baltic has been visited by over 8 million people since opening in July 2002. Beyond the building, the organisation sustains an ongoing exchange with its local communities, individuals and groups exploring creativity, social connections and shared hospitality.
In early 2022, Baltic became the first Gallery of Sanctuary in England, in recognition of its work to support forced migration communities in the North East.
