    Hayward at Home: Matthew Barney

    Made by children, for children, these resources get you closer to our exhibitions

    These resources have been created in consultation with children from a local primary school to be used in schools or at home without any special equipment.

    The videos and activities, all accessible for free, look at some of the ideas that have been inspired by the art as well as talking about how the pieces were made.

    The aim is to encourage children to think big thoughts and ask big questions – there’s no need for prior knowledge of art, in fact you don’t even need to have been to the gallery to get involved. It’s all about getting creative, having fun and exploring the art of the Hayward Gallery from wherever you are.
