Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art

A trip into Middlesbrough and lunch at the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art or Mima as it is locally known. I did have a quick look at the gallery. Not my scene but the cafe’s good, well recommended. The architect designed building (Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects) cost £14.2 million funded by Middlesbrough Council and Arts Council. I’ve heard no money was allowed for running costs so Teesside University have taken it over.

I was more interested in the reflections in the glass frontage. Kept hoping Harry Worth would appear.

    Yes, I agree the Cafe is probably the best part of the Gallery!

    I have visited twice in the past 4 years, never seen so much garbage masquerading as art in my life.

    The private gallery at top of Linthorpe road is much better and exhibits art from local artists (opposite Dorman Museum)
