gowithYamo – The Brand

Last year, major art institutions received 49.8 million visitors, generating £289 million in revenue. As a result, small galleries often tend to get overshadowed by a small number of these major institutions. gowithYamo came out with a solution to help small galleries increase their exposure and footfall. Their innovative gowithYamo app was introduced in 2018 with an aim to consolidate all exhibitions under a single unified platform, thereby making art more accessible to a wider audience.

gowithYamo have collaborated with Roy’s Art Fair, The Other Art Fair, Moniker Art Fair and The Affordable Art, to name a few. They’ve also landed partnerships with London Art Fair and Mayfair Art Weekend. With their impressive traction and innovative solution, the gowithYamo app has clocked 65k downloads and is still growing.
