Following two previous incarnations of Latitudes’ ‘Incidents of Travel’ guided-tour initiative in Mexico City (Casa del Lago, 2012) and Hong Kong (Spring Workshop, 2013), a new iteration explored San Francisco. Three specially-commissioned tours functioned as expanded studio visits – with artist Amy Balkin, the artist-curator collective Will Brown (a collaborative project of David Kasprzak, Jordan Stein and Lindsey White) and outsider librarians Megan and Rick Prelinger – while focussing on the Bay Area and Latitudes’s current research around the carbon cycle.

As part of the residency on August 29, Latitudes led the ‘Near-Future Artworlds Curatorial Disruption Foresight Group’, a closed-door seminar initially presented in May 2015 for the International Curatorial Retreat in Bari, Italy. The workshop is a forum for informal dialogue about megatrends and the future of contemporary art institutions, a by-invitation meeting bringing together individuals and expertise from the Bay Area with an active interest in institutional prototyping and emergent usership. In the San Francisco iteration an emphasis was put on cross-pollination between design thinking and curatorial thinking. Participants also discussed, among other things, the notion of the post-disciplinary, and the question of appropriate speeds, scale or periodicities of institutions.

Latitudes also contributed to two of Kadist Art Foundation’s online initiatives, firstly taking over their Instagram for 10 days as part of #ArtistNotAtTheStudioCuratorNotAtTheOffice and secondly, in One Sentence Exhibition (OSE) for which the foundation has invited curators to write or choose a single sentence, making each word in the sentence a hyperlink to an image, video, text or website. As a result, OSE becomes a compact architecture, accompanying the reader as they explore far-reaching corners of the internet.

Tras las dos iteraciones de ‘Incidentes de viaje’ en Mexico DF (Casa del Lago, 2012) y Hong Kong (Spring Workshop, 2013), Latitudes ha extendido una nueva invitación a tres artistas con el fin de explorar su práctica artística a través de la Bay Area norteamericana. Las visitas de estudio ‘expandidas’ de los artistas Amy Balkin, el colectivo Will Brown (un proyecto colaborativo de David Kasprzak, Jordan Stein y Lindsey White) y de los ‘outsider’ bibliotecarios Megan and Rick Prelinger enlazaron con la actual investigación de Latitudes entorno al ciclo del carbono.

El 29 de agosto, Latitudes lideró the ‘Near-Future Artworlds Curatorial Disruption Foresight Group’, un seminario a puerta cerrada que profundizó la anterior versión presentada en mayo 2015 para el International Curatorial Retreat in Bari, Italia. El seminario es un forum abierto al diálogo informal donde se discuten ‘mega tendencias’ sobre el futuro de las instituciones del arte contemporáneo. La participación al encuentro es por únicamente por invitación, y reune a expertos interesados en prototipar instituciones e identificar usos emergentes. Con un énfasis en la polinización cruzada entre el diseño y lo curatorial, el encuentro discutió, entre otras cosas, la noción de lo post-disciplinario, así como cuestiones latentes sobre los diferentes ritmos, escalas y periodicidades institucionales.

Adicionalmente, Latitudes contribuyó a dos de las iniciativas en línea que lleva a cabo la Kadist Art Foundation: primero con un Instagram takeover durante 10 días como parte de la iniciativa #ArtistNotAtTheStudioCuratorNotAtTheOffice y en segundo lugar contribuyendo a The One Sentence Exhibition (OSE), un programa iniciado recientemente por la fundación para la que invitan a comisarios a escribir o elegir una frase y a que enlacen cada una de sus palabra a una imagen, vídeo, texto o web. Como resultado, OSE se convierte en una arquitectura compacta que acompaña al lector a medida que éste explora el amplio alcance de las esquinas de internet.
