BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art

BALTIC Centre for
Contemporary Art

BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art creates and produces exhibitions, events and learning opportunities which champion the role of artists from across the world. Located on Gateshead quayside, we have 2,600 square metres of exhibition space making BALTIC the UK’s largest gallery dedicated to the art and artists of today and tomorrow. Beyond our gallery building, we connect and exchange with communities, individuals and groups continuously and, right now, are still doing this where safety and social distancing allows.

Ordinarily we love that we can welcome you to the building free of charge, 362 days a year so you can experience art you’ve maybe not seen before in our fully accessible building. Over 8 million have walked through our doors so far. We look forward to welcoming you back when we can open again. Right now you can visit our virtual exhibitions online at and look out for weekly online learning/family activities each Monday and curatorial events and podcasts every other Wednesday.
