The Hayward, a purpose-built, modern art gallery, was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1968. It is considered an icon of 1960s brutalist architecture. The Gallery plays a vital role in the visual arts in the UK and internationally. As one of the largest and most versatile temporary art exhibition spaces in Britain, it has proved remarkably adaptable in presenting a wide range of ground-breaking exhibitions for 40 years.

The Alternate Guide to the Universe
The exhibition will bring togethor self-taught architects and artists, photographers and filmmakers, futurists and choreographers, healers and scientists who together will conjure a parallel universe where ingenuity and inventiveness trump received wisdom.
This exhibition will bring together compellingly original artworks and artefacts from the last 25 years by a wide range of people who are largely self-taught, and whose work elaborates alternative ways of perceiving, imagining, describing, and moving through the world around us.
