We're thrilled for this new partnership with Bagri Foundation!

We're thrilled for this new partnership with Bagri Foundation!

We're thrilled to announce a series of new outdoor art commissions in partnership with the Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre launching next month with a large-scale installation by collective Slavs and Tatars.

Every summer until 2023, an artist will be commissioned to produce a site-specific work that invites visitors to London’s Southbank Centre to experience contemporary art in a unique and unexpected space beyond the gallery.

For their Bagri Foundation commission launching in August, Slavs and Tatars are creating a striking artwork that addresses a set of cultural histories intertwining Europe and Asia. Their practice questions understandings of language, ritual and identity through a blend of pop aesthetics, cultural traditions and overlooked histories. We can't wait to experience it!

Led by writer and cultural theorist Ashraf Jamal, and feat. Dr Ala Alhourani, curator Josh Ginsburg, academic and curator Dr Portia Malatjie.
