Momenta will present 136 small works by both emerging and known artists on display at our gallery in Brooklyn, NY. During this period, tickets will be sold for $150. each until all the tickets are sold out. Then the work will be re-installed for one day at White Columns located at 320 W 13th Street in Manhattan, where the raffle drawing and party will be held. 

The first ticket drawn randomly will give the holder first choice of one work displayed. The drawing will continue until all tickets are drawn.


Momenta Art is a not-for-profit exhibition space whose mission is to promote the work of emerging artists through two person shows, allowing artists separate project rooms and the distinct opportunity to present a substantial body of work. For most of these artists, this is their first opportunity to exhibit in New York outside of a group show. For each exhibition we publish a newsletter which lists other local galleries while providing further 
information about  the work exhibited in our project rooms. This newsletter also contains a map of art spaces in the area, so for those unfamiliar with Williamsburg, Momenta is an excellent first stop in Brooklyn.

Momenta Art is located at 72 Berry Street, ground floor, between N9th and N10th Sts. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. By subway, take the L train to Bedford stop (the first stop in Brooklyn). Exit on the Bedford side. Walk one block towards the river to Berry Street. Make a right on Berry Street and continue 2 1/2 blocks. By car, take the outside lane of the Williamsburg Bridge to the first exit. Make a sharp right onto Broadway. Drive 2 1/2 blocks to Berry Street and make a right. Continue for approximately 10 blocks.
