Momart Gallery is a contemporary art gallery

The gallery is located in the historic center of the Sassi di Matera, in a particular and suggestive location inside a cave-space.

Its goal is to give life to a cultural redevelopment of the historic place bringing a new sign linked to art, remember the past and live enjoing the present contemporary art.

Momart deals with the enhancement and promotion of emerging Italian and international artists; it has been active for years in the field of contemporary arts and the promotion of urban regeneration activities in the Lucanian area.
