Baltic Art Gallery

Baltic Art Gallery Oct 16 (2)

Tuesday 25th October 2016

I made a brief visit to the Baltic Art Gallery on the Gateshead Quays for a meeting with the Director. It has been a couple of years since I was last there so we had a good, though short, look about the building. My favourite exhibition was by Deimantas Narkevicius whose films looked at post-Communist Eastern Europe, and especially how Lithuania transitioned from totalitarian socialist dictatorship to a free, democratic nation. Some of the films were 3D though in the photo I took, it came out as a blurred image (you need the special goggles to see the films.)

This was quite a shock to the system! The stairwell has a giant mirror at the top and bottom. It leaves the impression that you are on an infinitely long staircase. It was quite fun once you were used to it.
