26 SEP 2018 - 6 JAN 2019
A major thematic exhibition featuring artworks by over 20 international artists that alter or disrupt our sense of space and re-orient our understanding of our surroundings in ways that are by turns subtle and dramatic.
Often constructed from reflective or translucent materials, including glass and resin, the artworks in Space Shifters elicit responses that are both physiological and psychological.
Featuring pioneering sculptures from the 1960s – often minimal in nature and concerned with light, volume and scale – this exhibition also includes large-scale installations, ambitious architectural interventions and a number of site-specific commissions that respond to the gallery’s brutalist architecture and provide a dramatic and fitting conclusion to Hayward Gallery’s 50th anniversary year.
Leonor Antunes, Larry Bell, Fred Eversley, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Jeppe Hein, Roni Horn, Robert Irwin, Ann Veronica Janssens, Anish Kapoor, Yayoi Kusama, Alicja Kwade, John McCracken, Josiah McElheny, Helen Pashgian, Charlotte Posenenske, Fred Sandback, Monika Sosnowska, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, De Wain Valentine and Richard Wilson.
