In its 20th anniversary year, BALTIC's biennial award is renamed The Vasseur BALTIC Artists’ Award, in memory of the late Isabel Vasseur, an admired figure who inspired a generation of curators and artists with her fearless approach to putting art in the public realm. Through the 2022 Award, BALTIC Legacy Patron, Vasseur continues to support the growth of contemporary art.

Vasseur's career spanned more than thirty years, encompassing photography and experimental film, important curatorial initiatives at festivals in Glasgow, Gateshead and Edinburgh, and through her London agency, Art Office, she commissioned public art projects throughout the UK. Vasseur served on the Board of Trustees for BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (2004-08) and lectured on the influential Curating Contemporary Art MA at the Royal College of Art (1993–2003).

This is a collection of material focussing on Isabel Vassuer's work locally for Gateshead Garden Festival in 1990 and Glow Festival in 2007. It includes press cuttings, press releases, exhibition guides and photographic material.

This collection is held in BALTIC Archive and available to view by appointment, please email in advance of your visit.
