OHWOW was established in 2008 by Al Moran and Aaron Bondaroff to encourage artistic innovation and provide a platform for progressive art of all media, featuring both emerging and established artists’ work. OHWOW is a gallery, publisher and special project – a creative community – with gallery and retail locations in Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City.
Through collaborations with various creative sectors, OHWOW produces projects and retail initiatives, extending its vision internationally. As a gallery, OHWOW organizes solo, collective, and group exhibitions, alongside presenting special projects and events conceived by outside curators. As a publisher, OHWOW fills a particular niche providing books that blur the line between objects and treasures, from exhibition catalogs to specific artist pieces.
OHWOW’s community of artists includes Daniel Arsham, Tim Barber, Scott Campbell, Brian Donnelly (KAWS), Phil Frost, Michael Genovese, Luis Gispert, Terence Koh, José Parlá, Aurel Schmidt, David Benjamin Sherry, Agathe Snow, and Aaron Young. Previous group exhibitions have featured work by a host of artists including Diana Al-Hadid, Rita Ackermann, Tauba Auerbach, Dan Colen, Harmony Korine, Nate Lowman, Ryan McGinley, Mariah Robertson, Shinique Smith, and Dash Snow.
