Jimmy Turrell | TyneDeck Prints


  • In 1969, a plan was proposed to unite the city of Newcastle with the town of Gateshead with a huge structure to be called the Tyne Deck. A great modernist creation would span the Quayside on each side and cover the Tyne in the middle completely, incorporating a concert hall, office space and outdoor areas.

    As part of the exhibition, Idea of the North, showing at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art this summer, graphic artist Jimmy Turrell was asked to interpret his vision on what would have become 'The city of Tyneside' in his signature graphic style. Turrell uses collage, colour and photography to construct what he sees the future of Newcastle and Gateshead would have looked like if the Tyne Deck had ever been built using imagery from the time and historical and cultural reference.

    Jimmy Turrell has produced four of these images as stunning prints made into A3 size to commemorate the Great Exhibition of the North running throughout the summer. Exclusive to BALTIC Shop, these are signed prints of a limited edition of 10 each.
