Local galleries including Kalashnikovv, Momo and Ebony Curated will be exhibiting, as well as local designers including up-and-coming Crispy Skateboards, The Herd Designs, Studio Kalki, and more.

“At RMB Latitudes we challenge the standard ‘white cube’ gallery model, reimagining the relationship between art and the viewer,” says co-founder and director, Lucy MacGarry.

“By creating spaces with an interplay between inside and out, the design of the Fair dissolves the typical art-viewing environment, creating a space for art to be engaged with and questioned in a uniquely African context. We also make it our business to allow all industry players an equal playing field, with galleries, alternative spaces and artists presenting side by side.”

RMB Latitudes Art Fair runs from 24-26 May at Shepstone Gardens. For more information, to view the full exhibitor list, and to purchase tickets, visit latitudesartfair.com.
