Maria Vega, Founder & Director of Ministry of Nomads

Our Story

Founded by now Director María Vega, Ministry Of Nomads was launched in 2008 as a commercial, educational and philanthropical platform for emerging and established artists  and collectors.

As an international art agency, Ministry of Nomads exhibits both represented and associated artists, primarily organizing pop-up exhibitions and activities, including curating art shows, staging performances, panel discussions and artist talks, all with the intention of giving a platform to international artists. MON does not limit exhibited art to traditional mediums, but supports a disparate collection of visual artists and musicians. MON often works with specialists and scholars from diverse fields of knowledge, collaborating with scientists and architects on creative non-commercial projects. Exhibitions are always organized so as to best suit the space to the art.

Ministry of Nomads is the result of extensive research, collaboration, discussion and debate. It was developed across a range of places: the London Studio, the Havana HQ ‘La Mina’, the satellite offices of downtown Tehran and many stops in between. With such wide reaching cross-communication, Ministry of Nomads began to spin the web of a true nomadic dialogue. Ministry of Nomads continues to roam the earth, investigating and engaging with the most culturally active places across the world.
