After much anticipation, we are elated to see (and touch!) Latitudes' five-part interview with Nicholas Mangan as part of his exhibition catalogue "Nicholas Mangan. Limits to Growth" (Sternberg Press, 2016). The publication is designed by Žiga Testen and includes newly commissioned texts by Ana Teixeira Pinto and Helen Hughes, alongside illustrations of Mangan's work and historical source material.

The five-part interview weaves together a discussion around five of his recent works ‘Nauru, Notes from a Cretaceous World’ (2009), ‘A World Undone’ (2012), ‘Progress in action’ (2013), ‘Ancient Lights’ (2015) and his newest piece ‘Limits to Growth’ (2016) commissioned for this exhibition survey. Latitudes’ dialogue with Mangan, began around a research trip to Melbourne in 2014, and continued in the form of the public conversation event that took place at the Chisenhale Gallery, London, in 2015, as well as over Skype, email, snail mail and walks.






 

The publication release coincides with Mangan's eponimous exhibition survey which began in July in Melbourne's Monash University Museum of Art and just opened this past weekend in Brisbane's IMA. The show will further tour to Berlin's KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Summer 2017.

October Cover Story: "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gallery"


A new Monthly Cover Story is now on www.lttds.org (after October it will be archived here). "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gallery" reflects on the recent reenactment of the 1972 performance by Robert Llimós, restaged during the four days of the recent Barcelona Gallery Weekend. "Los Corredores" was one of the five context-sensitive interventions curated by Latitudes for the second edition of the event.
 
(...) "During the past few days the Compositions of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend could be found in a subterranean billiards club, an abandoned textiles factory, a masonic-anarchist library, and the stables of the city police. The contribution of Robert Llimós was constantly dashing between these singular venues and the twenty-three participating galleries. Los Corredores (The Runners) was a remake of an action that was originally created in the summer of 1972 as part of the legendary avant-garde art festival known as Los Encuentros de Pamplona (The Pamplona Meetings). Llimós is best known for a long trajectory as a painter and sculptor that began in the sixties within the Nueva Figuración movement, and continues today with his depictions of extraterrestrials, yet this is one of a handful of his striking performative works."

La exposición "El Misterio de Caviria" de Antoni Hervàs dibuja los escenarios para un espectáculo visual estilo copla-terror donde, siguiendo los rastros de la Barcelona canalla de los años 60–80, colisionan dos mitologías: la del cabaret barcelonés y la Grecia clásica. Una invocación a los Dioses del subsuelo siguiendo la tradición del rito cabirio en el que el fuego, la sangre y la ridiculización de lo masculino son los ingredientes esenciales que permiten conocer una historia local que es a la vez universal.

A finales de enero se presentará una publicación conjuntamente editada por The Flames, el Ajuntament de Barcelona y La Capella que incluirá una entrevista entre el artista y Latitudes, tutores del proyecto, así como documentación fotográfica de la exposición y de las actividades programadas. 

La exposición "El misterio de caviria" se puede visitar en La Capella (c/ Hospital 56, 08001 Barcelona) hasta el 13 de noviembre 2016. El proyecto se enmarca dentro de la temporada BCN Producció'16.
