Southbank Centre  UK's largest arts centre. Home to Royal Festival Hall, @Hayward.Gallery, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, @nationalpoetrylibrary + more. 🎼🎤🎨📚💃🎭🥘🍹

Whether leading to the roof garden atop of Queen Elizabeth Hall or winding down to The Queen's Walk, the yellow staircases dotted around Southbank Centre give a jovial burst of colour that soften the brutalist surroundings.

For over a month, Lee Bul transformed the Hayward Gallery into a spectacular dream-like landscape with more than 100 works. The inspiration and enjoyment felt by those who visited the exhibition have been undeniable. We've enjoyed seeing your countless images and videos shared on Instagram; the monstrous bodies, the futuristic cyborgs and the exquisitely surreal monumental foil Zeppelin.
This weekend marks the final days of the exhibition and the last opportunity to encounter these unique and thought-provoking pieces at Hayward Gallery.

“What you see is not a chronologically ordered exhibition, what you see is an exhibition which is thematically put together, and thought about as a landscape. It’s about the human body, it’s about cyborgs, it’s about technology, it’s about utopian architecture. And so when you walk in, you right away feel that this is an artist who made her work for this brutalist building.”
- Stephanie Rosenthal, Chief Curator, Hayward Gallery.

What connects the visual work of kinetic artist Manzuk Khalid with the Tropicalia movement of late 1960s Brazil?
That'll be the Whyte Horse Experience, which exerts heavy influence from both to present a multimedia journey through film and music, with a psychedelic twist.

The Whyte Horses Experience is a multimedia journey through film and music, featuring collages that take in avant-garde cinema and childhood nostalgia (with faint echoes of The Velvet Underground’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable) while offering a sly wink to the Tropicalia movement of late 1960s Brazil.

“We wondered what a desert pop band playing in an old church in Mexico would sound like”
.
Dom Thomas' psychedelic fuelled aspirations for the perfect band have resulted in the forming of Whyte Horses, an experimental pop group, with live performances that draw on the influence of 1960s TV specials and avant-garde cinema.

We were delighted to welcome @kinetika_bloco's annual Summer Showcase back to @southbankcentre following their summer school residency. For this year's typically exuberant performance they celebrated #NewOrleans #carnival #jazz and it was like being there! For the uninitiated
The Kinetika Bloco is a performance group with an exuberant mix of young #brass and #woodwind players, #drummers, #steelpan and dynamic #acrobatic #dancers all in costume creating a unique new British Carnival sound with a decidedly London edge. The group was created in order to give young South Londoners the chance to become involved in a long term creative project.
