Morán Morán is a contemporary art gallery in Los Angeles. It was founded in 2008 as OHWOW, and was later named Moran Bondaroff. The gallery began as an alliance of artists and curators, presenting various exhibitions, happenings, and publications 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.
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.
Former partner Aaron Bondaroff resigned from the gallery in February 2018 after multiple accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior towards women. At this time, the gallery's name was changed from Morán Bondaroff to Morán Morán.
