ALMA MARTHA is an artist run platform to support emerging artists in South Africa. Its mission is based on the theory that the artist and artists collective are social animators. It offers a platform for local, regional and international artists to work singularly or in collaboration within and outside of the white cube. Critique and dialogue with all levels of art participants from artists, curators, professors, students and audience is encouraged to engage with one another. ALMA MARTHA works with artists who push the notions of contemporary and being contemporary; it is not always about the final product but quite often the process.
