Pippy Houldsworth GalleryLondon
Founded in 1999, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery has an international programme with a particular focus on generational crossover. This will be the gallery's inaugural presentation at Dallas Art Fair, bringing together work by Luke Diiorio, Mary Kelly and Faith Ringgold.
One of the gallery’s main focuses is highlighting the work of significant female artists. The gallery presented a Feature booth at Art Basel 2014 with Mary Kelly, juxtaposing unseen, archival material from the 1970s with new work produced specially for the fair. This was followed by Kelly’s first solo exhibition in London since her shows at the ICA in 1978 and 1993, serving to significantly increase her exposure in Europe. Since the gallery took on representation of Kelly, she has been awarded the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship Award; The Getty Institute has acquired the entirety of the artist’s archives; Tate Modern dedicated a room to one of Kelly’s early collaborative works in the new Switch House extension; Centre Pompidou have acquired a significant installation from the 1990s; Pippy Houldsworth Gallery and Tate worked together on a new form of curated talk, culminating in a live event between Kelly and Hans Ulrich Obrist at Tate Modern in May 2015.
Other seminal moments in the gallery’s recent history include staging Carrie Mae Weems’ first solo show in the UK; juxtaposing the work of Helen Frankenthaler alongside emerging artist Aimée Parrott; collaborating with the Estate of Alina Szapocznikow to present a seminal early work by the artist in the gallery's project space; Tania Kovats being nominated for the Max Mara Art Prize for Women (2015-17) in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery; and presenting acclaimed African-American artist Faith Ringgold's first European solo exhibition in March 2018.
Alongside the main gallery programme, the gallery presents a series of commissions in its micro-project space: The Box. Artists have included David Batchelor, Olaf Breuning, Shezad Dawood, Susan Hiller, Shana Moulton, Martha Rosler, Arlene Shechet, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Alina Szapocznikow and Ai Weiwei.
