gray+gray gallery was founded in 2022 by Jeremiah Quarshie, Kasimir Vollmer and Clemens Köhler in Karlsruhe.

The gallery represents a program of young international art.
Its artistic media ranges from representational and abstract painting, photography and object art to sculpture and performance.
The programmatic focus is on artists from Africa, complemented by those we particularly like.

gray+gray gallery uses the rooms in Herrenstrasse 46, 76133 Karlsruhe for a transitional period.
The move to the final location at Kriegsstrasse 134, 76133 Karlsruhe will take place in spring 2023.

gray+gray kitchen offers artists of the gallery and guest artists, a playground where artistic experiments take place without any commercial constraint.
gray+gray kitchen takes over the exhibition activities of theartape. For over 10 years, theartape and its predecessor institutions have supported contemporary art.

In this tradition, gray+gray kitchen offers an exhibition space and residency program in the rooms of Welfenstrasse 6, 76137 Karlsruhe.
In addition, there are living, working and exhibition opportunities in Berlin.
