BALTIC Self-Publishing Artists’ Market 2019 will take place on Saturday 27 April, with over 50 artists, bookmakers, small press publishers, printmakers, artist’s groups and zine makers selling their work.
Start your night at BALTIC for this year’s Late Shows, which promises to be bigger than ever. Explore a maze, build a tower and climb a structure in BALTIC’s exhibition THE CITY IS WHERE WE’RE GOING NEXT, by artists Simon and Tom Bloor. Get creative in a book-making workshop, join an experiential tour, witness special Kittiwake talks and have food and drink in BALTIC Kitchen.
This live work by Ravioli Me Away, described by the artists as an opera, features sixteen new multi-genre musical compositions across three acts. The View From Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis is a colourful, virtuous comi-tragic take on greed, freedom, individual and collective aspiration and the cycle of life, taking the audience through a multidimensional journey as ‘the trapped soul of humanity’ searches for a body that can give it meaning.
Join us at BALTIC for an evening of films selected by artist Ingrid Pollard, specially chosen for their exploration of landscapes and history in urban and rural settings represented on screen in UK and Black American film. The screening will be introduced by Pollard, currently exhibiting in the group show BALTIC Artists’ Award 2019, and includes a rare chance to see filmmaker Julie Dash’s highly influential first feature, Daughters of the Dust.
You are invited to Reorganising Cultural Institutions, a programme of talks and discussions about how cultural institutions currently function, their social and political history and the ways in which they shape value and attention.
