Featuring works by over fifty artists including Becky Beasley, Claude Cahun, Henry Fuseli, Richard Hamilton, The Lumiére Brothers, Henry Moore, Bridget Riley, Jo Spence and Francesca Woodman.


Turner Prize-winner Elizabeth Price presents the latest in a series of Hayward Touring exhibitions curated by artists.

The exhibition is designed to create an immersive experience for the viewer, in which works are connected associatively, with ‘the slippery, fugitive logic of a dream’. Price has staged the exhibition as ‘an austere melodrama’ exploring the psychological and formal power of the horizontal, in a vast repertoire of images depicting the reclining or recumbent body in varying states of weariness, stupor, reverie, grief, death, erotic transport and languor. The exhibition includes sculptures, drawings, photographs, films and videos, arranged in four loosely threaded sections: Sleeping, Working, Mourning and Dancing.

Elizabeth Price is one of Britain’s most thoughtful and original artists, whose video installations use a dynamic fusion of image, text and music to explore aspects of social history.
