Alongside the gallery, Karsten Schubert (with Charles Asprey and Thomas Dane) established the publishing company Ridinghouse in 1995. This London-based press is dedicated to publishing the best of art writing and criticism, revisiting art history and exploring individual artists and specific projects through its expanding lists.
Karsten Schubert London continues to nurture its represented artists–Rose English, Tess Jaray, Ann-Marie James, and Alison Wilding–at its current space on Lexington Street, Soho, through co-organising exhibitions with galleries at home and abroad. The company also oversees an off-site events programme and participates at numerous national and international art and book fairs.
Karsten Schubert, the company's founder, was born in Berlin, Germany in 1961 and died in London in 2019. He was an Advisory Board member of Drawing Room, London, and a Faculty of the Fine Arts member of The British School at Rome. 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).

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.

Her abstract forms may not at first glance appear to have any connection with the natural world. A black fibreglass balloon nestling inside a ring of...
At the Whitworth, a kind of mysterious gateway formed from interlocking recycled floorboards looms impressively over the centre of the room while a flotilla of silk and paper roses are adrift on a hemisphere of trashed concrete.
