Alongside 'Projects 2005–2012' – a visual index of thirty projects realized since 2005 – Latitudes originated 'Incidents of Travel' from its temporary office in La Sucursal space, for which artists Minerva Cuevas, Tania Pérez Córdova, Jerónimo Hagerman, Diego Berruecos, and Terence Gower were invited to lead day-long tours for Latitudes, articulating the city and their artistic practice through routes and waypoints in the metropolitan area. Documented and mapped in La Sucursal, the project explored the chartered itinerary as a format of artistic encounter with the capacity to bypass the convention of the studio visit through highly specific views of the city.

'Provenances' was composed of three specially commissioned solo presentations by artists Erick Beltrán, Simon Fujiwara and Jordi Mitjà.
The exhibition reflected on the heritage industry and the
museumification of history, as well as the creation, transmission and
fidelity of cultural worth. The artists in 'Provenances' shared an aesthetic and pragmatic concern with the principle of the personal archive or the pre-museal wunderkammer.
