OPENING: SOUTH SOUTH VEZA | Live Vernissage & Timed Online Auctions
SOUTH SOUTH VEZA opens with a live selling event on Tuesday 23 February powered by auction technology and led by experts. This vernissage event innovatively disrupts the conventional market model by giving full control of the sale to galleries and re-introducing their interaction with the client. The profits will go directly to artists and galleries, with up to 20% of the proceeds benefiting selected not-for-profit partners in recognition of the fundamental contribution these make to the art ecosystem of the Global South. In raising much needed funds and spotlighting these organisations, SOUTH SOUTH highlights the crucial role they play in nurturing artists where there is otherwise a lack of institutional infrastructure and support. Not-for-profit partners RAW Material Company (Dakar),Green Papaya Art Projects (Manila) and Casa do Povo (São Paulo) demonstrate SOUTH SOUTH’s role as an aggregator and a resource and community for galleries, curators, artists and collectors.
