Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, England

This evening, I am focusing on the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art which sits on the bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, England.

This building was originally a Flour Mill built to a late 1930s design by architects Gelder and Kitchen. Completion was 1950 with a subsequent extension on 1957.

The Mill closed in 1981 but, following a GBP50.00m restoration/re-building programme, was opened in 2002 as the Centre for Contemporary Art. Inside are four galleries which house an ever-changing programme of contemporary art exhibitions.

The Centre is open every day and offers visitors a wide range of facilities and experiences including the NewcastleGateshead cityscape.
