Hayward Gallery – Andreas Gursky exhibition

After 2 years of refurbishment the Hayward Gallery is now open for the exhibition of Andreas Gursky. His work is amazingly detailed and very big. The gallery itself is looking splendid and the work fits in beautifully, the top level with the new pyramid roof lights sheds in more natural light. This is mostly always the best light to see the pictures in.

Who is Andreas Gursky?

Andreas Gursky is a photographer from Germany and is well known for his large format architectural and landscape photography. When you visit his exhibition you will be stuck by how large they are and how much detail is in them. My favourite one is of the formula one, he captures the motion of the teams changing the wheels in a chaotic dance.

In recent years his photographs are more digitally enhanced to emphasise the message he is trying to portray.

Another one of my favourites is the abstract photograph which could be a painting.

Hayward Gallery

This exhibition marks the start of the 50th year of the Hayward Gallery and especially after the two year renovation it will certainly draw in the crowds to see the newly designed space. The gallery is part of the South Bank Centre which also incorporates the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room.

Andreas Gursky is curated by Hayward Gallery Director, Ralph Rugoff, in collaboration with the artist. Eimear Martin is Assistant Curator on the exhibition.

I’m thrilled that we will reopen Hayward Gallery with an exhibition by an artist who has created some of the most visually compelling images of his generation
