In 2005 Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna founded Latitudes, a curatorial office based in Barcelona, Spain, that works internationally across contemporary art practices.
Over the last 18 years, our approach to curating has aspired to reconcile apparently contradictory scales and temporalities: the particular with the planetary, the specific with the broad-ranging, personal decisions with overwhelmingly complex systemic challenges. Likewise, the artistic practices we are most interested in often tack back-and-forth between the micro and macro, margin and the centre, local history and world history. Our current research continues to focus on material narratives, biographies of objects, and a world-ecological perspective on art histories.* 
Latitudes has worked in a variety of formats and situations including more than 50 projects encompassing exhibitions, public realm commissions, performance productions, film screenings, editorial and discursive programmes.

Latitudes has worked with artists including
Lara Almarcegui, Mercedes Azpilicueta, David Bestué, Mariana Castillo Deball, Heman Chong, Jan Dibbets, Laia Estruch, José Antonio Hernández-Díez, Christina Hemauer & Roman Keller, Joan Morey and Lawrence Weiner; and has organised exhibitions and projects at venues including PUBLICS, Helsinki (2019 and 2022); MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (2016 and 2021), Fabra i Coats: Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (2018 and 2020), CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux (2017), Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Castilla y León (MUSAC) (2011), Kunsthal Århus (2011), Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2010), New Museum, New York (2010) Arnolfini, Bristol (2009) and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2008), amongst others.

Interview by Adam Carr – UOVO/14 Summer 2007
PDF (4.3 MB) English
Latitudes’ environmental impact is small, yet we acknowledge that our largest impact comes from flights and the disproportionate mobility practices of the sector we work in. We believe that art and culture have a role to play in bringing about ambitious change, applying best practices and setting a positive example to position the climate crisis at the centre of the political and social debate.

Since its beginning in 2005, Latitudes’ curatorial practice has been critically engaging with environmental concerns through contemporary art. Since 2023 we are members of the Gallery Climate Coalition, an international coalition of +1000 artists, galleries, museums and visual arts professionals from +40 countries providing environmental sustainability guidelines for the art sector, and sit on the Committee of their Spanish volunteer team, GCC Spain (watch Zoom launch).

As Active Members we are committed to measuring and sharing our carbon footprint on a yearly basis to comply with the GCC target of reducing carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 (when compared to a 2019 baseline). Rather than purchasing carbon offsets, and following GCC guidelines on this matter, we are setting aside a yearly fund to be spent on low-carbon purchasing options that would otherwise be unaffordable. Our intention is to eliminate unwarranted air travel when there is an alternative rail or sea route that takes less 7 hours. The latter policy follows one adopted by the Barcelona City Council in 2020.

Latitudes requests external collaborators opt for train or alternative low-carbon transit and freight options in line with GCC’s guidelines (as well as Gustav Metzger’s RAF/Reduce Art Flights campaign) and this is reflected in work contracts. We hope to lead by example in implementing a transversal sustainability strategy in the planning of exhibitions from an early stage, and whenever curating projects we always try to build the minimum necessary temporary architecture and ensure that any production is locally tuned. We ask that collaborators use no plastic or other single-use materials when transporting works or for events.

This website runs on sustainable energy. According to, it produces 16.76kg of C02 equivalent per year, roughly the amount of carbon that one tree would absorb in the same time, and consumes 44kWh of energy (equivalent to 280km in an electric car).

In our personal lives, we prioritise the 5 Rs: Refusing, Reducing, Reusing, Repurposing and Recycling. We do not own a car and use public transport networks. Other practical actions we undertake include periodically donating household or clothing items to charity organisations that offer support to the community in our neighbourhood (including Fundació Roure and El Trampolí). And last but not least, Latitudes banks with an ethical bank which invests in accordance with environmental, social and governance criteria.

Latitudes’s carbon emissions were 17.4tCo2e in 2019 and 3.8tCo2e in 2022. Our Strategic Climate Fund for 2023 is €190.
