|Series title:||Hayward Gallery Material: Aborted Exhibition Files, 1965-1986|
The Hayward Gallery opened on the South Bank in London in 1968 and was initially operated and maintained by the Arts Council. The Council's major exhibitions were then for the most part concentrated there.
The files relating to the art exhibition section of the Arts Council were stored with the Hayward Gallery rather than with the Arts Council. In order to reflect the separate custodial history of these records and in the interests of orginal order, they have not been re-integrated into the Arts Development Division sub-group. Instead they have formed the independent "Hayward Gallery" sub-group of the Archive.
This series contains files relate to the Arts Council's organisation of a number of exhibitions which were aborted for one reason or another. The files contain correspondence concerning the proposals and selection of the exhibitions by Arts Council officers.
See series ACGB/121 for files relating to those exhibitions which did go ahead.
There is no list of individual files in this series currently available.
