Gala Big Band – Raising the Flag – Lubaina Himid

Gala Big Band – Raising the Flag – Lubaina Himid banner image

A twelve-week programme of activities accompanies Lubaina Himid’s Our Kisses are Petals exhibition. The programme celebrates the raising of the flag on BALTIC’s exterior West face each Sunday at 11am with events and happenings on Baltic Square from community groups, musicians, artists and performers.

To mark the Raising of the Flag members from The Gala Big band will perform a ‘call and response’ between Baltic Square and BALTIC’s viewing platform, which will culminate in a full performance in Baltic Square. In addition, band leader Paul Edis will premiere a new work in response to Lubaina Himid’s Our Kisses are Petals. This performance will take place in the Ground Floor gallery (time TBC).
