When it was founded by Chris Beetles and Huxley-Parlour in 2010, the gallery’s initial focus was on 20th- and 21st-century photographers who have played an influential role in the history of art and the present-day field of photography. Over the course of eight years the gallery built up its reputation in the field of photographic exhibitions, showing the work of some of the leading photographers of the last 100 years, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Edward Weston, Steve McCurry, Vivian Maier, and Ruud van Empel. As its repertoire of renowned photographers—both on its roster and in its diverse holdings gathered on the secondary market—has grown, Huxley-Parlour Gallery has also become a member of The Society of London Art Dealers and the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD). In 2018 as the gallery expanded its exhibition space it also expanded its curatorial approach to include painting and sculpture.
Today Huxley-Parlour Gallery represents over 20 influential artists and estates, in addition to holdings works by other established and emerging artists, from the United Kingdom the United States and China. Among the selection of photographers on show at the gallery are historical figures such as Berenice Abbott, Terence Donovan, and Yousuf Karsh. With a strong leaning towards documentary photography, the gallery exhibits the work of several prominent affiliates of the world-acclaimed Magnum Photos agency, such as Bruce Davidson and Elliott Erwitt, alongside a host of established and emerging international artists, such as Sebastião Salgado, van Empel, Olaf Otto Becker, Valérie Belin, Jocelyn Lee, Cig Harvey, Gregory Halpern, Zhang Kechun, and Wang Qingsong. Since expanding its exhibition programme, the gallery has shown the work of British painters such as Rebecca Harper and Eileen Cooper, as well as contemporary visual artists from overseas like American painter Donald Sultan and Venezuela-born sculptor José Gabriel Fernández.
Huxley-Parlour Gallery participates in a range of key international art and photography fairs including British Art Fair, London; Photo London; Paris Photo; The Photography Show, New York (presented by AIPAD); and PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai. With a view towards creating enjoyment and stimulating conversations around art, the gallery complements its exhibitions and publications with an extensive and engaging educational programme in the form of curator-led museum tours, artist talks, and lectures. Huxley-Parlour Books—the gallery’s literary wing—meanwhile provides limited and collector’s edition art books.
