Considered as one of Europe’s leading contemporary art galleries, on January, the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art at Gateshead, UK BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art will showcase the powerful curves, clean lines and intricate detail behind the new generation Nissan Qashqai starting on Saturday, January 18. The event will feature rare concept images, a Qashqai showreel cinema and the new Qashqai itself, the event will preview a ceremony at the plant on January 22 to mark the vehicle’s launch.
And to complete the whole Nissan homage, the world-famous Gateshead Millennium Bridge will be illuminated in the Nissan brand’s signature red throughout the event, providing a signpost as visitors approach BALTIC. Nissan’s Vice President for Manufacturing in the UK, Kevin Fitzpatrick, said: “Nissan has created the next generation Crossover by redesigning Qashqai from the ground-up. We think it’s fitting to celebrate that design in one of Europe’s leading modern art galleries.”
The first generation Qashqai, the highest volume car made in Britain, also helped Nissan become the biggest UK carmaker of all time, with plant production recently passing one million vehicles in two years.
