Tramway will be one of the Glasgow venues for the influential Hayward Touring show, now in its seventh incarnation. The show, which happens every five years, is a major survey of the best in British art now. This is the first time it has toured to Glasgow in 20 years.

The tour, currently in Nottingham, will include the Hayward Gallery, London, then Glasgow, and finally Plymouth in December 2011. New work will be revealed at each city, creating a unique exhibition each time.

The Glasgow exhibitions will open on 27 May 2011 in GoMA, Tramway and The Centre for Contemporary Art. A number of artists in the show have strong links with Glasgow, including Karla Black, Duncan Campbell, Luke Fowler and Alasdair Gray.
