Based in Kemptown, Brighton, Koop Projects is a neighbourhood gallery with an international outlook.


We support creative projects that emphasise the role of contemporary African art and artists as a dynamic source for learning and change, promoting sustainable art practices through an interrogation of materiality and the contexts in which artists across Africa make and show their work. 


We are collaborative and community-focused, looking to foster conversations between artists in Africa and their counterparts in and around Brighton - opening doors for people with stories to tell by providing them with a space in which to realise their projects.


An open and nurturing place for free thinkers and creators, our innovative and evolving programme of exhibitions and events explores the boundaries between art, craft and design, finding connections in the people and places where these practices meet.
