Hayward Gallery - SBC
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.

Carsten Höller – Decision Dilemma
- 9 June — 6 September 2015 *on now
A solo exhibition by Carsten Höller, featuring a wide range of work in different media representing his artistic output from the past 20 years, including many works which have been seen in the UK before or which will be created especially for this exhibition.
Carsten Höller was born in Brussels in 1961 and lives and works in Sweden. After obtaining an advanced degree in science, Höller went on to develop a unique art practice that often draws on scientific experiments and research in works designed to affect our psychological and perceptual experience.
The Hayward Gallery exhibition challenges perceptions as each individual entering the exhibition is confronted with their own decisions to make in regards to how they view and engage with the art works.
Echoes & Reverberations
- 23 June — 16 August 2015 *on now
This group exhibition explores performative approaches to aural culture and oral history.
From Jumana Emil Abboud's weaving of Palestinian folktales into everyday life to Joe Namy's interest in forms of collective sound and music, the artists in the exhibition employ different strategies to conjure and challenge cultural memory, through objects, performances and videos.
Artists in the exhibition include: Jumana Emil Abboud, Anas Al-Shaikh, Basma Alsharif, Samah Hijawi, Magdi Mostafa and Joe Namy.
The exhibition is accompanied by newly commissioned performances on Saturday 18 July (more information coming soon).
A collaboration between Hayward Gallery, Delfina Foundation, the Maraya Art Centre, Sharjah and Shubbak.
