VICTORI + MO is a contemporary art gallery located in Bushwick, Brooklyn dedicated to developing and presenting emerging artists. Founded by Ed Victori and Celine Mo in 2014, the gallery has consistently served as a platform for artistic experimentation centered on supporting collaborative efforts to realize novel and ambitious projects, providing artists the freedom to transform the gallery to create immersive environments. VICTORI + MO’s program focuses on storytelling at the intersection of personal, social, and political narratives, promoting empathetic experiences that are relevant to life in an increasingly globalized community. In addition to nurturing artists and mounting exhibitions, the gallery also functions as a center for rigorous intellectual exchange, hosting dialogues, lectures, and other community activities. VICTORI + MO aims to transcend geographic and cultural boundaries by creating dialogue not only between the artists and the public, but across generations.
