South South is an innovative new platform that is an online community and anthology for galleries, artists, curators and collectors invested in the Global South. South South will host events year-round and seeks to address an imbalance in the art world framework by providing a means to explore alternative art centres within the broader geopolitical framework and present a varied and dynamic world view of contemporary art production. Hosted in an online viewing room (OVR) with enriched content, South South’s launching event is a hybrid of a live private selling event, powered by auction technology, and an online, peer-led art fair called Veza, which translates as to show, produce or reveal in isiZulu, one of South Africa’s 11 national languages.
South South Veza will launch with a Timed online and a Live VIP selling event on February 23, 2021; the VIP preview of the OVR will take place on February 24-25, 2021; curated Talks and Film programmes will take place on February 24-26, 2021 and public dates from February 26 - March 2, 2021.
