BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead is pleased to announce BALTIC Open Submission 2020, a major open-call exhibition. Opening Saturday 28 November the exhibition involves over 150 artists and makers based in the North East of England.
BALTIC received over 540 submissions through an open-call application process announced in the summer whilst the gallery was closed during lockdown. All entries were selected by a panel of three artists based in the North East: Richard Bliss, Lady Kitt and Padma Rao, and Katie Hickman, Curator (Performance and Public Programme) at BALTIC.
BALTIC Open Submission 2020 celebrates creativity in the North East; the vast number of entries and the works included in the exhibition highlight the variety and high quality of arts practice across the North East. The exhibition presents works by artists who have been making throughout their lifetime to those just beginning; from people who work collectively, to those who create alone; those who have studied fine art, to self-taught creatives who have only ever made work in their private homes.
The exhibition will include a wide range of media including painting, drawing, print, sculpture, ceramic, installation, video and sound works. BALTIC Open Submission 2020 seeks to give visibility to arts practice from individuals and collectives that may not previously have been seen by a public audience.
