GALLERY CLOSED TO PUBLIC DURING RELOCATION TO NEW PREMISES.
Please contact us on usual address. 16 August - 30 November 2010
Before establishing her own gallery in the West End in 2000, Pippy Houldsworth worked at Waddington Galleries, and the New Art Centre, London. With a young and knowledgeable team to support her, Pippy Houldsworth shows an enduring passion for the promotion of emerging and mid-career artists making work of serious critical interest, and is known and respected for bringing new names to the fore. The gallery focuses on its close relationships with museum directors and international curators.
Pippy Houldsworth was the first to represent artists such as Gordon Cheung (now represented worldwide); Dalziel + Scullion (exhibited with Dan Graham and Mark Dion, a Public Art Fund Commission, New York 2002, and Artes Mundi shortlist, 2008); Laura Ford (exhibited Camden Arts Centre, British Art Show, Tate Britain, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Miami Art Museum), the Royal Art Lodge (The Drawing Center, New York, The Power Plant, Toronto, MOCA, Los Angeles, the Liverpool Biennial); Zoë Walker & Neil Bromwich (Tate Britain, the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, ACCA, Melbourne, Beck’s Fusions, the ICA, London, Museum of Modern Art, Oxford); Rachel Goodyear (Tate Liverpool, Naussischer Kunstverein Weisbaden, Cornerhouse, Manchester) to name a few.
Enthusiastic about the international promotion of its artists, and with a firm and longstanding belief in the quality of their work, Pippy Houldsworth (gallery) works hard to raise the profile of its artists, both through the quality of its programme, and via publications and museum collaborations.
With a move to a new gallery space in London’s West End now imminent, and with a new programme to be announced shortly, Pippy Houldsworth is forging ahead to assure its position as a gallery with an active and intelligent part to play in the contemporary art scene.
