Hayward Gallery

Southbank Centre, 337-338 Belvedere Rd

Hayward Gallery is a world-renowned contemporary art gallery and a landmark of brutalist architecture. The year-round exhibition programme focuses on presenting a wide range of adventurous and influential artists from across the world.

Since it opened in the summer of 1968 with an exhibition by Henri Matisse, Hayward Gallery has played a crucial role in presenting work by some of the world’s most significant artists including Anthony Gormley, Ernesto Leto, Pipilotti Rist, Tracey Emin and Jeremy Deller, to name but a few.

Between September 2015 and 24 January 2018, the gallery was closed for a two-year refurbishment project to restore our iconic 1960s arts venues to a world-class standard.
