LATITUDES VISION AND MISSION
The Curated Market For Art From Africa
Latitudes Online is a global platform for art from Africa. The platform has been viewed in over 208 countries, and has shipped artworks across the world. With over 1700 artists from the continent represented on the site, it is the largest online platform for art from Africa.
Latitudes is your online destination to explore and buy contemporary art from Africa. With a constantly changing, curated selection of art from the continent and the diaspora, the site brings together artworks presented by galleries, curators, studios, not-for-profit organisations and independent artists themselves. The first platform of this kind dedicated to art from Africa, it is designed to help you discover creativity from the continent in a non-intimidating and accessible way.
The Latitudes Difference
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 practicing artists. We invite you to join us in creating sustainable change for Africa's creative economy.
