CURATED PROGRAMMING


ESSAY
Each year the fair will present a focus section featuring the work of one established and one emerging artist. ESSAY is  geared towards rarely-seen work by artists beginning their careers and overlooked masters.

INDEPENDENT
Independent is a curated exhibition of early career artists with no gallery representation. The objective of the annual exhibition is to introduce the works of unrepresented artists to galleries participating in LATITUDES. This section is by invitation, there are no costs to participate and LATITUDES takes no commission from the sale of artworks.

SPOTLIGHT
Spotlight is a curated selection of artists from Africa and the diasporas whose work is unknown or underrepresented outside of the regional contexts in which they or their galleries operate. Each artist is presented through a concise feature showcasing 3 works. Curatorially, the Spotlight section allows a conversation between different artistic practices while giving due spatial specificity to each installation. Practically, this platform allows African galleries to explore relationships with the South African market without taking on the financial risk of a full exhibition stand at LATITUDES Art Fair.

         
EMERGING PAINTING INVITATIONAL PRIZE (EPI)


The fair is thrilled to host an annual solo exhibition by the winner of EPI in partnership with the Emerging African Art Galleries Association to support and recognise emerging painters living and working on the continent.
