Description The success of Tate Modern has confounded even the most optimistic expectations. Over a million people came to see The Weather Project alone. What’s more, they loved it. A great big man-made sun in a huge industrial chamber with an enormous mirror on the ceiling. I had to clamber over rows of visitors lying on the floor, as if it was an eclipse. Another success story is the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead. It too has attracted more visitors than anyone predicted. The opening of the BALTIC has fuelled a big change in the attitudes of people from the North East to contemporary art. Newcastle and Gateshead residents are 40 per cent more in favour of centres for contemporary art (than before) and over 80 per cent believe that interest in arts and culture has increased since the gallery opened.
