SMO Contemporary Art is an international art platform showcasing modern and contemporary art from Africa and the diaspora to a global audience. Based in Lagos, Nigeria, and founded in 2016, SMO is dedicated to showcasing artists of all generations who have been instrumental in shaping West Africa’s contemporary art canon, and who are crucial in establishing a unique narrative of the continent.
Regular exhibitions at diverse and unconventional gallery spaces, as well as international fairs, underpin SMO’s vision to engage with large and heterogeneous audiences. Specialising in art advisory services, SMO also curates and manages important private and corporate art collections with a great commitment to documentation, preservation, and communication.
