Hayward Gallery

Founded in 1968 and housed in the striking, Brutalist surroundings of the Southbank Centre, The Hayward Gallery has for over 40 years been an independent, pioneering and influential force in the visual arts both nationally and internationally.

Permanent collections

The Hayward does not display a permanent collection, instead hosting a selection of rotating contemporary art exhibitions throughout the year.

Notable recent exhibitions have included the humorous work of David Shrigley, the interactive, immersive sculptures of Erneso Neto and the varied output of Turner Prize-winner Jeremy Deller.

Visitor Information The Southbank Centre is host to a number of restaurants and café, including Skylon, the Riverside Terrace Café, the Central Bar and the Canteen. The gallery shop offers a range of art-related items, and the branch of Foyles nearby provides a wide selection of art books
