Late Shows 2018

Saturday 19 May 18.00-23.00

Join us for a rare late-night opening of BALTIC, Gateshead and view our spring exhibitions.

Visit Idea of North, a group show part of the city-wide Great Exhibition of the North. This exhibition celebrates northern imagination and identity through architecture, photography, music and design. Explore Turner Prize winner Lubaina Himid’s solo exhibition Our Kisses are Petals, which presents new paintings on cloth that employ the patterns, colours and symbolism of the Kanga, a vibrant cotton fabric traditionally worn by East African women. Admire the incredible NewcastleGateshead views from the Level 5 Viewing Box. There’ll also be a special Kittiwake tour with Durham Wildlife Trust at 20.00.
