The mobile exhibition, What’s for Tea? housed inside a custom-built mobile art gallery Scotland's Travelling Gallery, journeyed to communities far and wide from February – June 2022, returning to base for BALTIC’s 20th Birthday Celebration Weekend on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 July 2022.

The exhibition title comes from the age-old question which Northern residents get quizzed on daily by friends, family and partners, “What’s for tea?”, referring to their main/evening meal of the day. What’s for Tea? will reference BALTIC’s building history as a working flour mill, opened in 1950 by Rank Hovis. It will explore food production and consumption; what we eat, how much we eat and how our eating habits could help combat the climate emergency.

Works by Isabella Carreras, Kara Chin, Turner Prize-nominated duo Cooking Sections, artist collective Future Farmers, Asunción Molinos Gordo, Julia Heslop, David Lisser and Sarah Qaed will explore sustainable food production and community initiatives through film, installation, sculpture, print and the written word.
