Lee Bul: Crashing

Hayward Gallery, London

NOW CLOSED

This mid-career survey explores the full range of Lee Bul’s work from the past three decades, underscoring the visceral and experimental impulses of her work. The exhibition includes new works, including one especially commissioned installation, and a recent series of silk velvet paintings, which will be shown alongside her most recent series of mixed media works in which the artist combines organic and architectural elements. Coinciding with the Hayward Gallery’s 50th anniversary, the exhibition will celebrate the 1960s iconic Brutalist architecture with a new site-specific installation that will accentuate the exterior of the gallery, responding to the building’s history. 

Find out more about the Lee Bul exhibition from the Hayward Gallery’s website.
