DESCRIPTION

Space Shifters brings together artwork by over 20 international artists on the theme of space disruption and alteration.

This major thematic exhibition features works that alter or disrupt our sense of space and reorient our understanding of our surroundings in ways that are by turns subtle and dramatic.

Often constructed from reflective or translucent materials, not least glass and resin, the artworks in Space Shifters elicit responses that are both physiological and psychological.

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