The Koppel Project (est. 2016) is an arts charity, gallery, and creative hub based in central London. We aim to support early and mid-career artists by offering affordable, communal studio spaces. We also run KOPPEL venues including both pop-up and long-term white-wall galleries, ideal to host exhibitions, innovative brands and creative entrepreneurs’ events and activities.
In addition to our spaces, The Koppel Project exhibition programme provides funding and logistical support for the staging of exhibitions by studio residents as well as guest artists and curators. We collaborate with national and international artists, curators, and institutions from a range of disciplines to develop curatorial projects and thoughtful exhibitions that provoke dialogue and generate diversity in the art world. The mission of our programme is to stimulate transformative cultural exchange and extend knowledge and understanding across subjects. The Koppel Project is committed to exploring and sustaining innovatory learning solutions through collaboration to hypothesise, experiment, and ultimately, help re-invent traditional learning systems.
We are grounded in the brokerage of space, filling abandoned buildings, and putting them to use in service of the arts and local community. As such, we are a nomadic organisation moving from site to site as necessary and adapting creatively to each new set of challenges and opportunities. We have been based in buildings from Baker Street to Stoke Newington, and along the way we have worked with over a thousand artists, curators, arts organisations, creative brands, charities, and institutions.
We take great pride in our team's flexibility and creativity as well as our passion for collaboration and the strong community we’ve developed over the last six years.
The Koppel Project is currently based in Hampstead, the West End, Bank and Mayfair, and is extending services to other areas of London.
