Montague Contemporary recognises the importance of changing the narrative of African art and of building a new shared counter-history. By championing unique perspectives and diverse identities in an accessible and engaging way, we aim to foster a new dialogue between audience and artist. Likewise, through innovative shared experiences, international fairs, and dedicated group and solo shows, we hope to bring increased exposure to the exciting world of contemporary African art.
Founded by Montague Hermann in 2019, Montague Contemporary realises the motivating factor of first-hand experience driving the future of the art market. Whether a new collector, or an avid collector exploring the contemporary African art scene, Montague Contemporary aims to curate an ongoing series of immersive experiences that transform the conventional gallery visit into inspiring memories – creating not just collectors but ambassadors.
