Space Shifters | Hayward Gallery, London, UK | 26.9.2018–6.1.2019
with Jeppe Hein, Alicja Kwade
26 September 2018 - 6 January 2019
Space Shifters is a major thematic exhibition that features artworks by over 20 international artists that alter or disrupt our sense of space and re-orient our understanding of our surroundings in ways that are by turns subtle and dramatic.Often constructed from reflective or translucent materials, including glass and resin, the artworks in Space Shifters elicit responses that are both physiological and psychological.Featuring pioneering minimal sculptures from the 1960s concerned with light, volume and scale, this exhibition also includes large-scale installations and ambitious architectural interventions. A number of site-specific commissions respond to the gallery’s brutalist architecture, providing a dramatic and fitting conclusion to Hayward Gallery’s 50th anniversary year.
