Hayward Touring is a contemporary art organisation producing exhibitions that tour to galleries, museums and other publicly-funded venues throughout Britain. We collaborate with artists, independent curators, writers and partner institutions to develop imaginative exhibitions that are seen by up to half a million people in over forty five cities and towns each year. Acting as a laboratory of ideas and nurturing new curatorial approaches, Hayward Touring’s exhibitions feature a thought-provoking mix of subjects and artists, intended to complement and expand upon our partner-galleries’ programmes.
Exhibitions range in scale from the British Art Show - the largest and most ambitious survey of recent British art, organised in different cities around the country every five years - to international group exhibitions produced with guest curators, artists and writers. The programme also extends to smaller monographic print and photography exhibitions, touring to a variety of venues including galleries, libraries, universities, colleges and schools, arts centres and historic sites.
Hayward Touring is supported by Arts Council England and, in addition to its own programme also tours exhibitions from the Arts Council Collection. For more information about the Arts Council Collection please visit www.artscouncilcollection.org.uk.
Hayward Touring exhibitions currently on the road include British Art Show 8 curated by Anna Colin and Lydia Lee which opens in Southampton on 8 October, the last city of its tour, and IN A DREAM YOU SAW A WAY TO SURVIVE AND YOU WERE FULL OF JOY curated by Turner Prize-winning artist Elizabeth Price, which launched at the Whitworth, University of Manchester this June. Presenting a vast repertoire of seminal artworks and historical objects, it explores the psychological and affective power of the horizontal.
