Carl Kostyál opened his eponymous gallery at 12a Savile Row in Mayfair, London in 2010 after a decade of private dealing and advising. He launched his first Stockholm space, Isbrytaren, at Igeldammsgatan 20 in 2013 and in 2016 moved to the former German Embassy at Artellerigatan. In May 2021 the gallery opened a new exhibition space, Hospitalet, in the 18th century mental asylum formerly known as Danvikens Hospital, in collaboration with Gullringsbo Konstsamling.

In addition to the London and Stockholm programme, Kostyál commissions artist projects at his home in Milan.

The gallery stages offsite exhibitions and partakes in fairs worldwide, as well as runs invitational artist residency programmes at Masseria Fontana di Vite in Matera, Mohilef Studios in Los Angeles, Blidö in Sweden and San Gallo in Milan. Each summer, the gallery hosts the Draw Jam in the south of Italy, with 20-35 international artists gathering together to make works on paper, which are sold to raise money for charitable causes. paper.
