70 Juta Street, Johannesburg, South Africa

Kalashnikovv gallery was founded in 2013 in direct response to the traditional white cube gallery system by envisioning an alternative operational model for the visual arts.

It is administered and curated by two of Johannesburg’s deep-rooted cultural instigators, M.J Turpin and Matthew Dean Dowdle, who prioritise a collaborative exchange in working with the artists they partner with.

Kalashnikovv currently represents a range of artists with emerging to established careers.

The gallery and its staff work in conversation with these artists to build networks, exposure and foster personal growth through exhibitions, residencies and exchanges.

The gallery is both a commercial art space as well as a project space for experimentation with an ethos of socio-political engagement and accessibility.

This sentiment operates at all levels of the gallery structure to facilitate new value benchmarks for artists, collectors, and visitors from within and outside the existing art ecosystem.

Kalashnikovv is a South African-based gallery constantly expanding its scope to partner with creators and communities worldwide.

These interactions with local and international networks continually help deconstruct and interrogate what a contemporary art platform can be to facilitate the changing role of art in modern society.
