Research trip to Athens, 11–16 October 2013

Latitudes has been invited by the Athens Biennale 2013 to visit 'AGORA', the fourth iteration of its recently opened biennial. Taking place over 55 days at the National Bank of Greece and at CAMP, 'AGORA' draws on the notions of assembly and assemblage and formulates through a succession of collaborative events, performances, discussions, screenings, workshops and educational programmes.

Research trip to Paris, 21–26 October 2013

Latitudes has been invited to take part in the Young Curators Invitational programme (YCI) coinciding with FIAC. Held since 2006 as a collaboration between the art fair, Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard and the Institut Français, YCI gathers a group of critics and curators during FIAC week for a programme of visits to Parisian cultural institutions, as well as a series of meetings with art professionals gathered on the occasion of the fair.

Other 2013 participants are Maaike Lauwaert, Christiane Rekade, Margit Säde Lehni, Miriam Kathrein and Amira Gad. The YCI is by invitation only. Latitudes was recommended by Zoë Gray (independent curator and vice-president of IKT, Brussels/Rotterdam).


Forthcoming in 2014

We initiate and develop contemporary art projects in association with institutions and collaborate with artists in productions encompassing a range of organisational forms and scales: genres of display and presentation; editorial practice and publication; forms of assembly, hosting and programming; as well as theoretical and interpretative contexts. Latitudes is a member of IKT and in 2010 received the inaugural Curatorial Award, Premi GAC.
