Hayward Gallery, part of Southbank Centre on the South Bank of the Thames, has a long history of presenting work by the world's most adventurous and innovative artists.

In addition to putting on major exhibitions and commissioning new artworks in the gallery, the Hayward also organises projects, installations and talks inside and outside other venues across Southbank Centre.

It is the only gallery in the world created in the Brutalist style of architecture - a striking concrete form that Londoners either love or hate.

Hayward Gallery has hosted striking exhibitions by Antony Gormley, Dan Flavin, Roy Lichtenstein, Tracey Emin as well as surveys of the Arts Council Collection.
