Outlet was originally conceived to be a conceptual space, or rather ‘out-space’, or ‘non-space’ where artists could experiment and communicate ideas that break from traditional notions of the ‘gallery-as-muse’ and the archetypal ‘white cube’; an ‘anti-cube’ so to speak.
Currently situated in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, Outlet encompasses broader notions of platform and space, encouraging cross-disciplinary discourses and exchanges. Collaboration and conversation are at the heart of this micro space, challenging establishment, creating a more dynamic space for the production and distribution of art. In essence, Outlet is a curatorial experiment, outside mainstream art structures, attempting to find a complimentary alterative to the gallery system in South Africa. In this vein, Outlet has partnered with Assemblage to give associated artists the option to submit projects that they may deem relevant for the project space.
