Hayward Gallery

The Hayward is an art gallery within the Southbank Centre, situated on the South Bank of the River Thames. Its location places it alongside several other major arts venues, including the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall/Purcell Room and the Royal National Theatre.

The Hayward opened on 9 July 1968 and its powerful massing and concrete construction makes it a good example of Brutalist architecture. It was designed by the Department of Architecture and Civic Design of the Greater London Council. The Hayward hosts three or four major

temporary exhibitions each year and does not house any permanent collections. The gallery is the base of the Arts Council's National Touring Exhibitions programme and until 2002 the Arts Council Collection. The gallery exhibition policy embraces visual art from all periods and past shows have included the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Edvard Munch and the French Impressionists.
