Also at Baltic, until May 8th 2022,  you may wish to visit the Ad Minoliti: Biosfera Peluche / Biosphere Plush exhibition which is Ad Minoliti’s first solo show in the UK. Minoliti uses feminist and queer theory to generate alternative interpretations of painting, design, architecture, art history and visual language.

Trained as a painter, they draw on the rich legacy of geometric abstraction in Latin America, such as Argentina’s Arte Madí and the Asociación Arte Concreto-Invención, both founded in 1945, which embraced playfulness in painting and painted on irregular shaped canvases, sometimes experimenting with three-dimensional objects.

There are bean bags on which you can relax and take in the colourful surroundings of the exhibits.
