The Arts Council Collection is the most widely circulated of Britain's national collections. To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the Hayward Gallery presents an exhibition drawn from the Collection, showing the enormous diversity and quality of British art over six decades.

It includes works by over 100 artists, ranging from Henry Moore and Francis Bacon to Sarah Lucas and Chris Ofili. Throughout this period, art has registered every significant shift of attitude and change in the economic, political and cultural climate, from the sober humanism of the post-War years, through the exuberance and irrevance of the 60s, to the brazen assertiveness of the 80s and the internationalism and self-consiousness of the present.
