The exhibition programme focuses on presenting a wide range of adventurous and influential artists from across the world and its rich history includes exhibitions by modern pioneers such as Paul Klee, Lucio Fontana, Francis Bacon, Bridget Riley, and Anthony Caro.

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.
