On the 18th of May, starting at 6:30 pm, a talk around the visible platform will take place as well as a roundtable involving a group of South African artists and collectives, some of whom are already part of the visible network. The event, curated by Matteo Lucchetti, co-curator of the visible project, and Gabi Ngcobo, member of the curatorial advisory board, aims to present the project to the local audience engaging in a conversation around some of the common issues and topics for art practicioners that operate in a constant dialogue with the social sphere. The list of invited artists includes Dala, Gugulective, Donna Kukama, Made You Look, NON NON Collective, Mlu Zondi.
