Teachers' Twilight: Bridget Riley

Part of Bridget Riley

Get the most out of the artist’s major retrospective exhibition in an evening session especially for newly qualified teachers, teachers in their first year and teachers new to Hayward Gallery.

Led by artist educators, curators and the Creative Learning team at Southbank Centre, the event introduces you to Hayward Gallery and the work of Bridget Riley and supports you to get the most out of your gallery visit with your class.

Discover how you and your students can get involved with Hayward Gallery and use the exhibition as a resource to explore a variety of topics and ideas.

You also have the opportunity to meet and network with other new teachers.

Organised by the National Galleries of Scotland in partnership with Hayward Gallery and in close collaboration with the artist, this comprehensive exhibition is the first large-scale survey of Riley’s work to be held in the UK for 16 years.

The exhibition looks closely at the origins of Riley’s perceptual paintings and traces pivotal, decisive moments in her acclaimed career.

It features the artist’s iconic black-and-white paintings of the 1960s, early representational paintings, expansive canvases in colour and recent wall paintings, as well as studies and preparatory material.
