ABOUT SOUTH SOUTH

SOUTH SOUTH is an online community, an anthology, an archive and a resource for artists, galleries, curators and collectors invested in the Global South. The platform offers a repository and a space for new, shared value systems centred on community, collaboration and exchange. It is a central portal to experience the programmes and artist profiles of galleries within and dedicated to the Global South. It will host year-round events and seeks, during these tumultuous times, to address an imbalance in the global cultural framework by providing a means to explore a de-centred art world, within a broader geopolitical context. In the featured section, the platform maintains an ongoing interview-based editorial component, including conversations, essays and other texts on current events and significant shows in and about the Global South. In the archive section, SOUTH SOUTH facilitates a community-built archive highlighting selected seminal exhibitions, texts and moments about modern and contemporary art in the Global South at galleries, not-for-profits and museums, as well as archived interview-based editorial and artist profiles. Content of the site is established through contributions from key artists, writers, curators, nonprofit organisations and gallerists. SOUTH SOUTH maintains an ongoing programme. The inaugural event, SOUTH SOUTH VEZA, ran from 23 February to 7 March 2021 and brought together 50+ galleries from more than 40 cities spread across 30 countries and 5 continents, presenting a more holistic world-view of contemporary art.
