B is for Baltic

Gateshead Council first conceived the idea of transforming the former 1940s grain warehouse on the south bank of the River Tyne into an international gallery which would be at the forefront of contemporary visual art in December 1992.

The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts is a really cool place that holds a lot of modern art, which I’ve not seen a lot of in my life.  I remember going there with Steve the winter before last and seeing an exhibit from a lady who set up a camera behind her, and took a video of herself standing in various, busy streets around the world.  Kind of odd but impressive too.  They also have a deck to stand outside and look out over the river too.
