Momenta Art is a not for profit exhibition organization based in Brooklyn, New York dedicated to providing opportunities to emerging and underrepresented artists since 1986.

​   
Momenta  Art was originally established in Philadelphia in 1986 by a collective of five artists including Eric Heist,
the current director, Donna Czapiga, James Mills, Christina LaSala, and Timothy Aubry. Our goal was to provide opportunities for emerging and underrepresented artists to exhibit their work outside of a commercial framework, which remains central to our mission today. From 1986 to 1991 Momenta operated a permanent exhibition space in Philadelphia which presented the work of approximately 250 artists. In 1992 Momenta Art relocated to New York City, functioning during this transitional phase as a migratory gallery while presenting exhibitions in a variety of temporary venues in Manhattan. In March of 1995 Momenta Art reopened in a permanent exhibition space in Williamsburg,  Brooklyn. In 2011 Momenta relocated to Bushwick,Brooklyn, shifting our focus to include enhanced public events accompanying each exhibit through screenings, panel discussions, artists talks that complemented the topics introduced in the exhibitions, and reflecting concerns of the community at hand as well as larger social and aesthetic issues. In 2017, Momenta shifted from a permanent exhibition space to migratory exhibitions, in response to the changing climate of support for not for profit art organizations. Exhibitions and events in this new phase of Momenta's history are presented through the cooperation of participating organizations, galleries, curators, and artists.

Momenta Art’s board is comprised of artists, educators, and professionals who value social criticality combined with aesthetic complexity. They provide input in how best to serve those artists through board meetings and ongoing conversation. Our “open call” to artists and curators allows us to find emerging talent that displays these properties, and to extend an ongoing dialog inter-generationally across the spectrum of gender and race.
