Residents: Kadist Art Foundation, San Francisco, 26 August–9 September 2015.

Following its two previous iterations in Mexico City (Casa del Lago, 2012) and Hong Kong (Spring Workshop, 2013), 'Incidents of Travel' will explore San Francisco. Three specially-commissioned artist-led tours – expanded studio visits – will focus on the Bay Area and Latitudes's current research around the carbon cycle.

During this period, Latitudes will also lead a 'Near-Future Artworlds Curatorial Disruption Foresight Group', a workshop which extends the seminar recently developed in May for the International Curatorial Retreat in Bari, Italy. This workshop aims to operate in the realm of "art-fiction" to discuss desirable or dystopian institutional prototypes, speculative art world services, as well as imminent and real (to use the startup term) disruptions.

Kadist Art Foundation, 3295 20th Street, CA 94110, San Francisco, USA.

Monthly 'Cover Story' on

Our new home page now features a monthly 'cover story' focusing on an artwork, artist, book, site or trip related to our practice and accompanied by a short text.

Cover story #2 (April 2015), titled "Beneath the Connaught Road West flyover, Hong Kong, 19 January 2013", is illustrated with a photograph by artist-and-curator-and-writer Heman Chong taken during the first "Incidents of Travel" itinerary in Hong Kong, led by the artist Nadim Abbas.

Cover story #3 (May 2015), announced some important information: Lawrence Weiner’s preferred single malt whisky is Scapa 16 Year Old (“Sweet and velvety on the nose ... slightly dry with the merest hint of the sea”).

Cover story #4 (June 2015), pays a visit to the studio of Barcelona-based artist Ignasi Aballí, whose commemorative tote bag reads “NOTHING” on one side and imprecisely “SOMETHING” on the other.
