Art History Festival 2023 – North East

baltic centre for contemporary arts


A preview at Baltic celebrating the opening of an exhibition developed in collaboration with Project Art Works, a collective of neurodiverse artists, activists and carers based in Hastings. Their programmes range from studio-based practice to awareness raising in the cultural and care sectors. They disseminate their work through projects, exhibitions, collaborations and films. The collective includes caregivers who share knowledge about health and social care systems to promote better life outcomes for themselves and those they care for. 

The exhibition is part of Project Art Works’ EXPLORERS programme, a partnership programme of art and action that opens up routes into artistic practice for neurominorities, dismantling attitudinal and systemic barriers to representation and rights in art and society. It will bring together research and learning from the collaboration, and include a programme of workshops and events developed with neurodiverse communities, local partners and individuals.

Join MIMA Gallery Assistant and ceramic practitioner Chris Suttie on this special tour as he explores the alchemy of glazing through the Middlesbrough Collection’s ceramic holdings. Glaze is a fundamental process of ceramics – providing the clay surface with protection from pollutants and a huge range of colour and depth.

The Middlesbrough Collection comprises over 2,350 works of art and craft made by British and international artists from the mid-1800s to today. The ceramics collection is made up of over 500 pieces made between the 1920s to 2020. The works show various making techniques, decorations, glazes and finishes.

The tour takes place in MIMA’s Open Access Collection Store, which offers a unique behind-the-scenes view of the ceramic and jewellery strands of the collection. These objects illuminate cultural life and artist practices locally, nationally, and globally.

Please contact with access requirements.
