The Netherlands is the guest 'Focus' country in the forthcoming ARCOmadrid 2012 Fair. Within this context, Latitudes has been invited to curate the representation of Dutch art institutions. Hosted within a specially-commissioned structure designed by Dutch artist Jasper Niens in collaboration with designer Thijs Ewalts, 'The Dutch Assembly' will consist of the accumulation of 31 hourly talks, statements, artist presentations, book presentations, performances and screenings from art spaces, research initiatives and artists, forming a series of documented 'depositions' analysing artistic practices and cultural policies from the Dutch perspective.
Participants include: Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Amsterdam; De Appel arts center, Amsterdam; VanAbbemuseum, Eindhoven; Museum De Paviljoens, Almere; Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam; Kunstverein, Amsterdam/New York/Milan; TENT, Rotterdam; Jan Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht; Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam; BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht; Wendelien van Oldenburgh...
