Gateshead Revisited




I received this through the post today from the Baltic in Gateshead and really liked the play on words it presented. Working in advertising myself, I can fully admire an established brand, however old, such as Penguin books and how it can be adjusted to fit in with the modern aesthetic of the Baltic.

BALTIC presents an exhibition of new works by British artist and writer Harland Miller. The Bad Weather paintings, based on the dust jackets of old Penguin books wistfully comment on the culture of North East England where Miller grew up.

In addition, during the exhibition the north face of BALTIC plays host to the large-scale banner of the painting Gateshead Revisited.
