Grad is a not-for-profit organisation which has been operating in London since 2013 as a Kunsthalle, a platform and a forum for debate while researching, curating, commissioning and producing over a hundred critically-acclaimed projects.

Equally known for its historical shows and contemporary exhibitions, Grad instigates intellectual enquiry and builds connections between artists, individuals and communities from different backgrounds and cultures. Grad challenges cultural bias and preconceptions and champions an inclusive approach while exploring synergies between established artforms and new media.

In May 2014 Grad was awarded a prestigious Immunity from Seizure status by DMCS which allows Grad to work with international museum collections and archives. 

Grad has been exploring the legacy of the avant-garde within contemporary cultural production, across the visual arts, performance, film and music. This influenced Grad to develop a new art platform ShadowMemory that provides free access to everyone, 24/7, and acts as a multidisciplinary art exhibition, a tour, a game, and an immersive experience, interacting within both digital and physical spaces.
