A Hayward Touring Exhibition from the Southbank Centre London

About

Atrium & Room 3 

An exhibition  presented by Turner Prize-winner Elizabeth Price, the latest in a series of Hayward Touring exhibitions curated by artists.

It features works by over fifty artists including Becky Beasley, Guy Bourdin, Claude Cahun, Henry Fuseli, Richard Hamilton, The Lumiére Brothers with Loie Fuller, Henry Moore, Paul Neagu, Bridget Riley, Jo Spence and Francesca Woodman.

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.
