The Koppel Project is excited to be hosting its first Art Sale and Christmas Market in our Soho gallery. We will be showcasing the work of our studio artists and the artists included in our current exhibition with a broad range of new works available for sale at a variety of accessible price points. The Koppel Project is home to dozens of talented artists and makers who produce work to suit every taste, across genres and media, and we’re delighted to be able to exhibit this diversity in what promises to be a lively and inviting format.
Alongside the art sale we will be hosting a market-style fair, with prints, hand-made goods, pieces by emerging designers, products from local businesses and wintry treats for sale, plus hot mulled wine and mead! Come in from the cold and spend some time with the artists, see their work, browse the stalls and pick up a truly unique gifts or two.

Each studio unit is 15m2 and includes fibre optic WIFI and all utilities. Artists share large communal studios, and also have use of an attached project space.

We are open to the public Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-6pm whilst studio artists have access 7 days a week and extended hours. The studios have very large windows that provide good natural light and ventilation with coded door locks on each studio floor for added security.

The Koppel Project Central
The Koppel Project Central is pleased to present Freeze-frame, Fast-forward, a show of works that ‘stop the clock’ at various points in the constant stream of moments which become memories and experiences, which in turn form the substance of our lives. ‘Freezing the frame’ allows us us some breathing room for reflection, analysis, and meditation. The show contrasts the fast-moving stream of our present-centred lives with the singular moments which give substance to the transitory. Reimagining history; catching the ephemeral; and weaving in political stories, social experiences and personal archives, the artists examine and respond to a variety of moments through highly individual approaches to a wide range of media.
Some of the works in the show approach the theme from a sociological/political perspective, others from a personal or retrospective angle. They also run the gamut of affective tools – from witty symbolism or gestural viscerality to contemplative framing and unexpected jumps between modes and dimensions. Freeze-frame, Fast-forward aims to discuss ways of reconciling the individual moment with the historical and the universal; past and future trauma with present laughter, and the fleeting nature of snapshot memories with the permanence of cumulative experience.
