First opened in Aachen, Germany in 2003, ARTCO Gallery has recently expanded its geographical repertoire to include a space in Berlin and in Joshua Tree, California. In March 2023 ARTCO will open a new location in Brussels, Belgium.
Run by Joachim and Simon Melchers, ARTCO presents a wide portfolio of contemporary artists working across a variety of creative practices – and always with a focus on the African continent, its diaspora, and its cultural and historical influence.
The gallery participates in a number of international fairs, seeking to bring art from the continent to the widest possible audience. In addition to its programme of solo shows and group exhibitions, ARTCO Gallery regularly publishes artist monographs and exhibition catalogues.
