BALTIC Artists’ Award 2019 is our second worldwide biennial art award judged solely by artists. Three internationally renowned artist-judges have each selected an artist who has the opportunity to realise new work which will be seen in this four-month exhibition.
This exhibition draws on the imagination of contemporary artists to inspire a conversation on ideas of citizenship in the digital age. We are said to live in the era of ‘fake news’ – online propaganda which significantly endangers democracy.
The Age of Love
Produced as a major new commission that responds to BALTIC’s vast Level 4 gallery, Heather Phillipson presents a series of videos, sounds and objects that operate as landmarks in a remixed geology.
Declaration of Independence
Barby Asante’s work creates situations and spaces for dialogue, collective thinking, ritual and re-enactment. For Declaration of Independence, the artist proposes a performative forum, drawing its inspiration from conferences and sessions that negotiate treaties and create policy.
A painting and sculpture prize open to all UK final year Fine Art undergraduates. Awarded & presened by Northumbria University & BALTIC. First Prize £20,000 fellowship including studio space | Second £9k | Third £6k. Call for entries closes 1 April
Curated by Lucy Lopez and Kim McAleese, Grand Union and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art
In collaboration with Grand Union, Birmingham, BALTIC presents Ways of Learning. This project will engage with BALTIC 39 as a site for learning, providing a context for a programme of events, artworks and communal sharing of knowledge. The site will encourage conversation that generates collaborative practice, and repositions BALTIC 39 through dialogue with its communities.
From Monday 25 to Friday 29 March, BALTIC's Level 5 Viewing Box will be closed due to the de-install of the Heather Phillipson exhibition. If you would still like to see the spectacular views of the River Tyne and the return of the Kittiwakes, please visit our outdoor Level 4 Viewing Terrace. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
