You Kept Me Vaguely Sane is a graduate exhibition by students of the BxNU Master of Fine Art:

In 2016, in his speech before meeting the Queen to relinquish political office, David Cameron thanked his wife Samantha for keeping him vaguely sane. As a group of young artists working together in the two-year period following this event, we find ourselves in a state of flux, living, reacting and adjusting within this aftermath. Responding to this Brexit limbo and the ever-moving political landscape, the thing that has kept us all vaguely sane is the sanctuary of our creativity.

Throughout the two-year programme these artists have been encouraged to experiment, diversify and innovate, guided by individual curiosity and yet simultaneously driven by collective concerns. The BxNU Master of Fine Art, is a unique partnership between Northumbria University and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, based in the vibrant studio culture of BALTIC 39.
