BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art
One of Britain's liveliest modern art galleries, the Baltic Centre occupies a former flour mill on Gateshead's waterfront. Exhibitions from the likes of Brian Eno and Beryl Cook cause occasional controversy. Visit the Rooftop Restaurant for great views.
A £46 million National Lottery-funded project transformed the former Baltic Flour Mills into one of the biggest international contemporary arts spaces in Europe. The venue houses five galleries, artists' studios, a cinema/lecture space, library and archive for the study of contemporary art, as well as several food and drink areas.
For more information about current exhibitions, please visit the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art website.
