As the leading contemporary art gallery in KwaZulu-Natal we are excited to announce our participation in the first edition of LATITUDES Art Fair in Johannesburg. Our presentation will include the works of three KZN artists, Sthenjwa Luthuli, Cameron Platter and Derrick Nxumalo.
The works will appear alongside artists from South Africa, Uganda, Spain, Angola, Norway, USA, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Germany. The LATITUDES programme is curated to present the work of emerging artists predominantly from Africa and its diaspora with ‘the aim to create a richer global understanding of African cultural production.’
With the aim of the fair in mind we present three artists in different stages of their careers, all working with distinctive mediums, an articulated use of colour and an intensity that speaks to the vibrancy of the city in which they live – Durban. That intensity is carried through in the laborious art-making process each artist is compelled to use, whether it be relentless pencil marks, wood carving with utter precision or the painstaking use of ballpoint mark making.
