Want to sell your art to a global audience? Join Latitudes Online today!

 



Latitudes Online is a global platform for art from Africa. The platform has been viewed in 135 (of 195) countries, and has shipped artworks across the world. With over 950 artists from the continent represented on the site, it is on its way to becoming the largest online platform for art from Africa. 

As an online art marketplace and educational platform, Latitudes is the first of its kind to take a lateral and flexible approach to mediating art on the continent, according to which artists, galleries, independent curators, online entities, and institutions can experience equitable participation. 

Our belief is that such a shift within our industry has been a long time coming, and will hopefully lead to a wider array of opportunities for artists and greater agency for the collector. 

Africa is bursting with creative talent but has too few sustainable avenues to support practising artists. We invite you to join us in creating sustainable change for Africa's creative economy.

Latitudes Education

ARTISTLAB

ArtistLab is a practical programme for artists looking to build a career in the industry. Presented by established arts professionals, this free 5-session intensive seminar programme is training participating artists in some of the key skills needed to build a strong foundation for a career in the arts. In addition, artists develop work, under the supervision of an established artist, towards an online exhibition hosted by Latitudes Online.

CURATORLAB

CuratorLab is a practice-based, online curatorial residency for emerging curators in Africa. The inaugural edition took the format of a facilitated online residency for curators from each of South Africa's nine provinces. Designed to offer practical experience in the industry and to hone the curatorial skills of young curators, CuratorLab is one of the few programmes of its kind on the continent. It allows for participating candidates to plan and conceptualise their own show to be hosted on Latitudes Online.

 

Both ArtistLab and CuratorLab are ongoing programmes intended to provide skills and resources to artists and curators in South Africa and on the broader continent.
