ROLLO Contemporary Art is a commercial gallery located in London W1, which
was re-launched in 2008 by Philippa Found. Although a small exhibition space,
the gallery has become internationally renowned for its influential critically
engaged curated exhibitions. The programme is singular amongst commercial
galleries for its focus on women artists and a driving concern to redress the
under-representation of women artists. A central philosophy of the gallery is to
bring theoretically engaged exhibitions to the commercial gallery space, by
reviewing themes in current art practice and dedicating solo exhibitions to
significant contemporary artists.
Such projects fusing these concerns include The Body in Women’s Art
Now, a three part travelling exhibition curated by Philippa Found, which
travelled to the New Hall Art Collection, University of Cambridge, in which many
leading British and international artists including Tracey Emin, Cecily Brown,
Nathalie Djurberg, Sigalit Landau, Regina Jose Galindo, exhibited alongside
cutting edge emerging talents such as Sarah Lederman and Helen Carmel Benigson.
Solo exhibitions have included the first London solo exhibition of Guatemalan
artist Regina Jose Galindo (winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale,
2005) which was acclaimed by art historian and critic Roger Bevan as being "a
museum exhibition in a commercial gallery - an exhibition you would expect in
the Whitechapel or Serpentine; absolutely exemplary amongst commercial
Testimony to the strength and focus of the gallery, in 2010, the gallery
director and curator, Philippa Found, was invited to be a founding member of the
Centre Pompidou Gender and Art board.
