In January 2019 Karsten Schubert London launched its new exhibition space Room 2. The gallery’s unconventional setting – an apartment in a mid-eighteenth-century terraced house – provides a platform for invited artists to exhibit work in a domestic space. The programme focuses on close collaboration with artists to create thoughtful, select exhibitions. Karsten Schubert London also co-organises exhibitions with partner galleries and museums and participates in international art and book fairs.
Ridinghouse, the gallery’s publications arm, is internationally recognised for its dedication to publishing the best of art writing and criticism, revisiting art history and exploring individual artists and specific projects through its ever-expanding list. Ridinghouse was founded in 1995 by Karsten Schubert with Thomas Dane and Charles Asprey. Recent titles include Reconstructing Cezanne: Sequence and Process in Paul Cezanne’s Works on Paper, Cecily Brown: Shipwreck Drawings and The Outwardness of Art: Selected Writings of Adrian Stokes.
Throughout its esteemed 30-year history the gallery has championed contemporary artists from across the globe, with a special focus on artists from the UK. Notable exhibited artists include Carl Andre, Glenn Brown, Mat Collishaw, Keith Coventry, Michael Craig-Martin, Dexter Dalwood, Dan Flavin, Anya Gallaccio, Gary Hume, Tess Jaray, Michael Landy, Bob Law, Gerhard Richter, Bridget Riley, Ed Ruscha, John Stezaker, Rachel Whiteread, Alison Wilding and Fred Wilson.
Karsten Schubert, the company's founder, was born in Berlin in 1961 and died in London in 2019.

His books include Bridget Riley: Complete Prints, 1962–2012 (ed., 2012) and The Curator’s Egg: The Evolution of the Museum Concept from the French Revolution to the Present (2000).

Tess Jaray's From Piero and Other Paintings —shadows of the masters. Rachel Spence writes her response to From Piero and other paintings, Tess Jaray's solo exhibition at the New Art Centre, Salisbury in the Financial Times for the 13 February 2021 FT Weekend.
Using the Art Deco building of the Barber Institute, designed by Robert Atkinson and built between 1932—1939 as a Foundation for the works, the paintings extend Jaray’s ongoing contemplation of architectural form and continue her rigorous evaluation of the emotive conditions of spatial composition through carefully considered, desaturated...
The show is a dialogue between Wilding and Leeds-born Frances Richardson who is showing Because the two parts don’t quite touch (2019)—a looped structure surrounded by a pair of boulders—among other works.
Wilding is an alchemist whose art is full of romance and mystery and sudden transformations. She is also, her mini-retrospective at the De La Warr Pavilion makes plain, an artist of nature.
