News has just been announced that in 2011 BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is to become the first host of the Turner Prize outside the capital.
This is fantastic news for the Arts here in the North East and, of course, BALTIC.
As the current host, Tate Britain, describes:
“The prize is awarded each year to a British artist under fifty for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the twelve months preceding.”
I have always been proud to work with BALTIC over the years and no more so than now. The anticipation for this event is already palpable…!
