Since September 2015, the Hayward Gallery has been closed for essential repairs and refurbishment, including the replacement of the Brutalist building’s 66 iconic pyramid roof lights. This January, for the first time since the gallery’s original opening, its pyramid roof lights will allow natural light into the spaces below. A major Andreas Gursky retrospective marks the beginning of the Hayward Gallery’s 50th anniversary year and is the first exhibition to take place in the new gallery. Gursky is known for his large-scale photographs capturing emblematic sites and contemporary life. The exhibition will feature approximately 60 of the artist’s photographs, from the 1980s through to his most recent work, which continues to push the boundaries of the medium. Find out more about the Hayward Gallery reopening from their website.
