Concrete slab housing big-name art exhibitions
Together with the Queen Elizabeth Hall [classical music venue], the Hayward represents all that is generally perceived as ugly and unwieldy about the riverside Southbank Centre arts complex — certain architectural purists still stand by its late-60s brutalist stance — but few can argue with the Hayward's place as a giant on London's art landscape. Exhibitions last in the region of three months, and tend towards the contemporary. The Hayward Gallery is closed from February to May 2010 for essential repairs and renewal, reopening on 19 June.
