To mark the fifth anniversary in Heddon Street location, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is curating an exhibition encompassing a selection of the most significant artists to have been included in the exhibition programme over the past five years. From Mary Kelly’s iconic early work from the 1970s to Ayan Farah's ephemeral textile-based paintings, the programme has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to showing work of serious, critical interest. Highlighting the gallery’s recent history, and marking its direction for the future, the exhibition will provide a rich overview of current developments in contemporary art by bringing together some of the most important artists working today.

Highlights of the exhibition include: four new works by The Bruce High Quality Foundation defacing portraits of the last four prime ministers, serving to highlight the current political instability in the UK; two corporeal drawings from the early 1970s by Polish artist Alina Szapocznikow, each poetic and harrowing in equal measure; a new, wall-bound sculpture by Daniel Arsham composed of crystal-like shards; an unseen, photographic work from Martha Rosler’s iconic Transitions and Digressions series; and a new, large-scale mirror diptych by young American artist Dean Levin.
