Gallery MOMO is a contemporary art gallery with a focus on African art and art from the diaspora
Gallery MOMO is a contemporary art gallery with spaces in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa. We represent a growing number of international and locally based contemporary artists with a focus on African art and art from the diaspora, in addition to the estates of notable 20th century South African masters such as Dumile Feni and Durant Sihlali.
Since opening its doors in 2003, Gallery MOMO has developed a strong creative and intellectual platform for showcasing a substantial portfolio of South African, continental and international contemporary art. The Johannesburg gallery is known for its lectures, panel discussions and seminars, and hosts a residency program, which provides opportunities to collaborate with artists from around the world. In the Cape Town space, Gallery MOMO has adopted a focus on emerging artists, as well as video artworks. The gallery will be relocating in January 2019 to new premises in the heart of the Cape Town CBD.
Gallery MOMO takes part in international art fairs such as The Armory Show, EXPO Chicago, and 1:54. The gallery’s artists are frequently included in exhibitions, biennales and established private and public collections across the globe. These include, among others, the Venice Biennale, Dak’Art, Lyon Biennale, and Havana Biennale.
