New Media Focus: Pushpamala N & Gigi Scaria | SOUTH SOUTH Veza 02
SOUTH SOUTH’s second edition of VEZA focussed on digital art and the remarkable possibilities of new media, as well as our core activity of facilitating new connections within the cultural ecosystems across the Global South and beyond. Galleries from 25 cities spread across five continents came together to present a selling exhibition of important video artworks at SP–ARTE (Sāo Paulo) and simultaneously online here. This marked SOUTH SOUTH’s transition into a hybrid model through collaboration with regional fairs. The presentation was powered in partnership with Niio — a state of the art platform which enables new media to be preserved, certified and seamlessly acquired through blockchain technology, offering collectors the complete package for digital art and encouraging new audiences to collect new media with confidence. VEZA 02’s focus on new media reflects the increasingly important role played by digital art in the post-pandemic world in its potential to communicate and connect across borders at a time of ongoing travel disruption, particularly in the Global South.
We are delighted to present works by Pushpamala N & Gigi Scaria for this edition.
