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!

Look at our new billboard! 👀

It’s a stunning painting by NY-based artist Salman Toor, which celebrates the freedom, empathy and joy of being physically together to witness art.

Music Room (2021) depicts a social gathering where groups of figures dance, hang out, and seem to melt into the floor under the influence of music.

Come see it outside the Gallery!
