Mom & Jerry Foundation

Founded in 2016,  Mom & Jerry Foundation  is dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of the heritage after deceased artists, rebels and cult icons Mom & Jerry, through exhibitions, research initiatives, and publications.

ABOUT MOM & JERRY (♱ 2016)
Throughout an illustrious career, starting as street artists and working their way up to the top of the international contemporary art scene, Mom & Jerry were considered cultural and civic icons. The multi-faceted Mom, and her dirty son Jerry had a passion for art, music, parties, glitter and fashion. In addition to being artists, they considered themselves rebels, outlaws, DJs, living sculptures, talk show hosts, TV personalities, art critics, curators, Broadway dancers, writers and most recently, celebrity superstars.

Living their lives in late capitalist society, where the economic, abstract forces makes daily life unreal, and where the individual itself is the operating tool for the techno-marketing power, artists like Mom and Jerry can be seen as recycling machines in the monstrous, virtual city of garbage.
