Summer

JUN – SEP 2019

For Summer 2019, we entered a world filled with excess in Jean Paul Gaultier’s part revue, part catwalk, Fashion Freak Show, and our Hayward Gallery exhibition Kiss My Genders showcased more than 30 international artists whose works redefine identity, beauty and the body.

Our outdoor stage exploded with DJs, performances, film screenings and live music as we hosted takeovers from some of London’s most essential club and cabaret nights, including Siren, The Cocoa Butter Club and Little Gay Brother.

Our summer programme returns in 2020.
