Hayward Gallery is a world-renowned contemporary art gallery and a landmark of Brutalist architecture. The exhibition programme focuses on presenting a wide range of adventurous and influential artists from across the world, while its rich history includes exhibitions by modern pioneers such as Paul Klee, Lucio Fontana, Francis Bacon, Bridget Riley, and Anthony Caro.
See the first major UK retrospective of the work of acclaimed German photographer Andreas Gursky.
Between September 2015 and January 2018, the gallery was closed for a two-year refurbishment project, the focus of which was the replacement of its 66 iconic pyramid rooflights.
This project was made possible through the generous support of Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund, trusts and foundations and over 50,000 individuals and Southbank Centre friends supporting our Let The Light In fundraising campaign. You can still help support the refurbishment of our Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room venues.
