Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (also known simply as Baltic, stylised as BALTIC) is a centre for contemporary art located on the south bank of the River Tyne alongside the Gateshead Millennium Bridge in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, England. It hosts a frequently changing programme of exhibitions and events, with no permanent exhibition. It opened in 2002 in a converted flour mill.

 

Baltic's director is Sarah Munro who joined in November 2015, the first woman in its history to hold the position. Baltic is a registered charity under English law.[1]

Directors

The founding director, Sune Nordgren was appointed in 1997 and was integral in Baltic's pre-launch period, having overseen the building of the gallery and was there for the first one million visitors. After almost six years, Nordgren left to take up a new post as founding director of the National Museum for Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo, Norway.[2] He was briefly succeeded by Stephen Snoddy who was only with the organisation for one year. Snoddy was succeeded as director by Peter Doroshenko in 2005, intended to increase visitor numbers and resolve the financial situation.[3] Doroshenko organized several exhibitions during his time at the Baltic, including Spank the Monkey.[4] In November 2007, Doroshenko left the gallery to head up the PinchukArtCentre in Kiev, Ukraine.[5] Since 2008, the director was Godfrey Worsdale, founding director of the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. Sarah Munro became director in November 2015.

 

Klara and Edda belly-dancing

On 20 September 2007, Baltic management contacted Northumbria Police for advice regarding whether or not a photograph should be displayed as part of the Thanksgiving installation, a forthcoming exhibition by American photographer Nan Goldin.[6] The photograph entitled Klara and Edda belly-dancing (which, along with the rest of the installation, is part of the Sir Elton John Photography Collection) features two naked young girls and had previously been exhibited around the world without objections.[7] The installation, which had been scheduled for a four-month exhibition, opened with the remaining photographs but closed after just nine days at the request of the owner.[8]

 

Turner Prize

In 2011, Baltic was the venue for the Turner Prize, this was the first time the event had been held outside of a London or Liverpool Tate in its 25 years.[9][10] The Turner Prize exhibition at BALTIC attracted over 149,000 visitors, more than at any previous Turner Prize exhibition.

The mill in 1950

The Baltic Flour Mill was built by Rank Hovis to a late-1930s design by architects Gelder and Kitchen[11] and completed in 1950. It was extended in 1957 by the addition of an animal feed mill. The mill was closed in 1981.[11] It was one of a number of mills located along the banks of the Tyne, all of which, due to their size, were prominent local landmarks. The Spillers mill just downstream from the Baltic on the north bank of the river was demolished in 2011.[12] Another large mill was owned by the CWS and was located just upstream of Dunston Staiths. The site of this mill and the adjacent CWS soap works is now occupied by a residential development.

 

Dominic Williams of Ellis Williams Architects won an architectural design competition, managed by RIBA Competitions, in the mid-1990s to convert the 1950s Baltic Flour Mill into a centre for art. After ten years in the planning and a capital investment of £50m, including £33.4m from the Arts Council Lottery Fund, Baltic opened to the public at midnight on Saturday 13 July 2002.[13] The inaugural exhibition, B.OPEN, had work by Chris Burden, Carsten Holler, Julian Opie, Jaume Plensa and Jane and Louise Wilson and attracted over 35,000 visitors in the first week.[2] An early exhibit of the Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, a Japanese girl, can be seen in the window of the east elevation.

2008.11/23。因為煩燥所以跳上往台北的客運。看了場[1976]在信義誠品的Live。歌迷是長谷川俊和邑田航平。國父紀念館有好多彩色的小皮球。接著我迷路在巷弄中囧rz。還好最後趕在關門前找到形而上畫廊。最後一天的遇見[奈良美智]+村上隆+草間彌生聯合特展。於是我在簽名簿看到妳的簽名。還有[你]的...

天空異常的藍

我沒有看見雲和彩虹

街上的人們似乎非常滿意

即使沒有彩虹

 

會是美好的一天 怎麼沒有想法

 

季節轉變的時候

我會背上空白行囊

遺忘的童話 是我的嚮導

等他們美夢中醒來

我已跨越一整個沙漠

在廣衾草原上睡著 然後夢見思念的妳

 

在夢中翻開了日記

妳大笑為寫給妳的詩

在夢中牽著妳的手

在夢中翻開了日記

妳大笑為寫給妳的詩

在夢中牽著妳的手 說著旅行的故事

To celebrate the birth of his son this month, Copenhagen art dealer Nicolai Wallner invited the artists he represents "to do an exhibition celebrating the spirit of life."

 

This is the flyer for the show, titled "Silly Adults." It depicts, I'm guessing, Wallner's older son's room, which has some mighty sweet art in it. Congratulations, Wallners!
