DESCRIPTION

'One of London’s most important spaces for displaying contemporary art, The Hayward is housed in an austere 1968 building that is both equally loved and derided by the majority of Londoners. Whichever camp you fall into, you’ll agree that it makes an excellent hanging space for the blockbuster exhibitions it puts on.’ (Lonely Planet)

The Hayward was opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 1968. It is an outstanding example of sixties brutalist architecture and is one of the few remaining buildings of this style. It was designed by a group of young architects, including Dennis Crompton, Warren Chalk and Ron Herron. The Hayward is named after the late Sir Isaac Hayward, the former leader of the London County Council.

The Hayward is the heart of the visual arts at Southbank Centre. In addition to putting on major exhibitions and commissioning new artworks in the gallery, The Hayward also organises projects, installations and talks across the site.
