BALTIC’s strong and playful brand mirrors the iconic building in which it is housed. Quality, integrity and accessibility are its brand values, while its personality is sophisticated, stylish and self-deprecating.
Housed in a landmark industrial building on the south bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, BALTIC presents a dynamic, diverse and international programme of contemporary visual art. BALTIC has no permanent collection, providing instead an ever-changing calendar of innovative exhibitions and events that give a unique insight into contemporary artistic practice. 2011 sees BALTIC host the Turner Prize 2011, the first time it has been shown outside of a Tate venue.
