About our renovation project

Between Sep 2015 and Jan 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.
