SOUTH SOUTH is pleased to present its second collaboration with an art fair in the Global South, with the video programme titled Human Tides, taking place both online and at FNB Art Joburg in Johannesburg. The programme features the work of 17 artists primarily from Africa, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and the Diaspora, and explores the scope of human and cultural influence over the course of various ecosystems, considering absence and amassing, myth-making and mythology. The video programme, following on from our collaboration with SP–ARTE in São Paulo earlier this year, will form part of FNB Art Joburg’s ORG section, which looks to redefine how people engage with organisations that were established for the good of the public. From 1-4 September 2022, it is available online, here, for those who will not be in Johannesburg for the fair, as well as for those who would like to explore it in depth.

Join artists Helena Uambembe and Sandra Poulson in a conversation that accompanies our SOUTH SOUTH FILM programme, Human Tides. The two artists came together when the SOUTH SOUTH platform first launched in early 2021 to exchange views on art, archives and the suppression of information in Angola in a written piece called This is not the Angola we dreamed of. Much has happened since. Join them again in an online conversation about now.

SOUTH SOUTH is the place to discover artists working in the Global South. It is a wellspring of information and resources about the region. It is also a vanguard platform striving to find new ways to support artists and galleries.
The initiative seeks to address an imbalance in the global cultural framework by providing a means to explore a de-centred art world within a broader geographical context.
SOUTH SOUTH features year-round programming and content. Our inaugural event SOUTH SOUTH VEZA (23 February – 7 March 2021) presented an enterprising new format for exploring artists from the Global South, with participation from 56 galleries from 30 countries across 5 continents. Explore the VEZA talks programmes Think Tank and IN DIALOGUE for cross-regional conversations between curators, artists, collectors, writers and gallerists.
At the core of SOUTH SOUTH is the Archive. This community-built archive highlights seminal exhibitions, texts and moments that contributed to an expanding imaginary of curatorial and artistic practice in the Global South.
In the Featured section, the SOUTH SOUTH team maintains an ongoing, interview-based editorial component, including conversations, essays and other texts on arts practitioners and current events related to the Global South.
