Space Shifters: meet the curator

Key Words:

Space Shifters is a major group exhibition that brings together sculptures and installations from 20 different artists that explore perception and space. Spanning a period of roughly 50 years, the exhibition features works from the 1960s as well as new commissions that have been made in response to the gallery’s architecture.

In this video, Hayward Gallery Senior Curator Dr Cliff Lauson introduces the exhibition and a number of its works, including WeltenLinie (2017) by Alicja Kwade, Narcissus Garden (1966-2018) by Yayoi Kusama, and Richard Wilson’s 20:50 (1987).
