Hayward Gallery

Hayward Gallery is a world-renowned contemporary art gallery and a landmark of Brutalist architecture.

The current 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.

Hayward Project Space 

Hayward Gallery’s Project Space, situated above the gallery’s foyer, features a regularly changing programme of single installations and small exhibitions by British and international artists whose work is rarely shown in the UK.

Hayward Gallery refurbishment

Since September 2015 Hayward Gallery has been closed for essential repairs and refurbishment, including the replacement of the Brutalist building’s 66 iconic pyramid roof lights. When it reopens in 2018 the upper galleries will be flooded with daylight.
