Gallery Momo is a gallery for contemporary art that was set up in 2003 in Johannesburg under the directorship of Monna and Lee Mokoena.
The gallery represents a prominent selection of local and international artists working in photography, sculpture and painting. It not only seeks out new tendencies within the contemporary art scene on the African continent but also supports artists from the Diaspora. With a residency programme for local and international curators and artists, Gallery Momo wants to encourage an international dialogue and cooperation between artists from different parts of the world.
An important goal for the gallery is to expand the local art market, to develop new audiences and to attract the attention of art critics and collectors for the growing African art scene by means of international cooperation and exhibitions.
