Teachers’ Twilight Session: Space Shifters Exhibition

Part of Space Shifters

Teachers are invited to a free evening exploring our new Hayward Gallery exhibition.

Whatever your subject, get an in-depth look at the visually spectacular world of Space Shifters.

Over a free glass of wine, hear curator Cliff Lauson give a talk about the exhibition, before taking a guided tour.

Find out how your students can get involved with Hayward Gallery, network with other teachers and meet the Southbank Centre Education team.

Space Shifters is a major thematic exhibition that features artworks by over 20 international artists that alter or disrupt our sense of space and re-orient our understanding of our surroundings in ways that are by turns subtle and dramatic.

Often constructed from reflective or translucent materials, including glass and resin, the artworks in Space Shifters elicit responses that are both physiological and psychological.

Featuring pioneering minimal sculptures from the 1960s concerned with light, volume and scale, this exhibition also includes large-scale installations and ambitious architectural interventions. A number of site-specific commissions respond to the gallery’s brutalist architecture, providing a dramatic and fitting conclusion to Hayward Gallery’s 50th anniversary year.
