Artículo en abc.es sobre el 10º aniversario de Tate Modern y el proyecto 'Mataró Chauffeur Service' de Martí Anson en colaboración con Latitudes

Link al artículo aquí. Extracto del texto de Javier Díaz-Guardiola publicado en la web del ABC.es, 6 Mayo 2010:

"Un taxi de ida y vuelta"
El evento, de carácter gratuito y abierto a todo el mundo, iniciativa del artista Maurizio Cattelan y comisariado por Cecilia Alemani y Massimiliano Gioni, llevará por nombre «No Soul for Sale. A Festival of Independents», y entre los más de sesenta espacios de arte independientes convocados (de White Columns de Nueva York a e-flux de Berlín o la Mountain School of Arts de Los Ángeles) habrá participación española, y no nos referimos a su director, Vicente Todolí.


Así, la oficina curatorial Latitudes colaborará con el artista catalán Martí Anson, que, con el proyecto «Mataró Chauffeur Service», se convierte –convenientemente dado de alta y pertrechado como tal– en taxista, para trasladar su coche tuneado como un Spanish cab hasta Londres y empleando la Sala de Turbinas como aparcamiento del mismo. Durante los días que dure el festival, el vehículo se transformará en sala de proyecciones de los vídeos de creadores como Jan Dibbets, Roman Keller o Bik van der Pol, con los que ha trabajado Latitudes. La ruta del viaje y sus andanzas pueden seguirse en el blog http://lttds.blogspot.com Es su particular manera de celebrar estos últimos diez años que serán analizados este fin de semana en las páginas de ABCD."

'Portscapes' "making of" videos on Latitudes' YouTube Channel




We just opened a Latitudes' YouTube Channel with ten 'behind the scenes' videos from 'Portscapes', the evolving series of art projects presented and produced throughout 2009 in and around the port of Rotterdam. The videos present short interviews with the artists (Lara Almarcegui, Jan Dibbets (part 1 and part 2), Marjolijn Dijkman, Fucking Good Art, Ilana Halperin, Christina Hemauer & Roman Keller, Paulien Oltheten, Jorge Satorre, Hans Schabus) and an introduction to the project by SKOR curator Theo Tegelaers and Ria Haagsma, Senior Communications advisor of the Port of Rotterdam Authority.

Latitudes' YouTube Channel also includes documentation of an action with Lawrence Weiner in the context of his 2008 Fundació Suñol exhibition 'THE CREST OF A WAVE' as well as Ignasi Aballí whitewashing a window for his exhibition 'Something, or nothing' in the Suitcase Art Projects, Beijing.

'Close Encounters' with Bik van der Pol in Eindhoven


On Sunday 14th, Bik van der Pol (www.bikvanderpol.net) realised the public performanceClose Encountersin the context of the final day of the 'Be(com)ing Dutch' exhibition at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven.


Around 80 people gathered "to generate enough compressed mental power in a moment of great concentration to launch the Evoluon into flight." An iconic 77 metre-diameter concrete 'flying saucer', the Evoluon was built in the 1966 by the electronics company Philips, to house Eindhoven’s museum of science, technology and progress. It closed its doors to the public in 1989, partly because the technology was obsolete and also because in the 1980s Philips was forced to economise. Today the Evoluon serves as a conference centre.

Particularly interesting in the Spanish context is that during the 1960s, Philips invited Spanish immigrants to live and work in Eindhoven. They were the first foreign labourers, and sent photos of the building back home to show what a modern city they were living in.

On the map the location of the performance is marked with an X.
