Morán Morán is a contemporary art gallery in Los Angeles. It was founded in 2008 as OHWOW[1], and was later named Moran Bondaroff. The gallery began as an alliance of artists and curators, presenting various exhibitions, happenings,[2] and publications[3] before evolving into what it is today.


Morán Morán exhibits work in a variety of media including: painting, drawing, installation, video, photography and sculpture.

Previous group exhibitions have featured work by artists including Rita Ackermann, Tauba Auerbach, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Peter Coffin, Dan Colen, Harmony Korine, Nate Lowman, Ryan McGinley, Mariah Robertson, Amanda Ross-Ho, Shinique Smith, Dash Snow, and Jessica Stockholder.

As of spring 2011, Morán Morán opened a gallery location in Los Angeles, designed by New York City architect Rafael de Cárdenas.[4]

Founded in 2012, Know Wave (operating out of New York City, Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo) is an international community platform that promotes expression through music, interviews, publications, and happenings.[5]

Former partner Aaron Bondaroff resigned from the gallery in February 2018 after multiple accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior towards women.[6] At this time, the gallery's name was changed from Morán Bondaroff to Morán Morán.
