Her solo exhibition Aire and Angels will be on view at the National Portrait Gallery, London, from 3rd October 2019 to 5th January 2010 – featuring over forty works spanning her career from the early 1990s and specifically focusing on the last 10 years.

Reading and Writing at the Irish Musem of Modern Art, Dublin, in 2009, brought together many literary-infused works. Catalogues accompanied each of these exhibitions, and a monograph was published by Rizzoli International Publications in 2005 and 2017. Peyton lives in New York.
