Hayward Gallery to Reopen With Andreas Gursky Exhibition

. October 2, 2017

The Hayward Gallery at the Southbank Centre in London is to reopen with the first major UK retrospective of the work of German photographer Andreas Gursky.

Gursky, known for his large-scale, often spectacular pictures that portray emblematic sites and scenes of the global economy and contemporary life, is widely regarded as one of the most significant photographers of our time.

This exhibition features around 60 of the artist’s ground-breaking photographs, from the early 1980s through to his most recent work, including Paris, Montparnasse (1993) – one of Gurksy’s most well-known images – and Rhine II (1999/2015), which borrows from and builds on the tradition of German Romanticism to offer a subtly altered version of this iconic river.

Andreas Gursky marks the beginning of the Hayward Gallery’s 50th anniversary year and is the first exhibition to take place in the gallery following its two-year refurbishment.

Exhibition on view 25 JAN 2018 – 22 APR 2018.
