May 2022 cover story on www.lttds.org

The May 2022 monthly Cover Story “Things Things Say in print” is up on our homepage: www.lttds.org

“Do you trust things to write human history? To speak on behalf of natural history? Did you ever own a pair of dungarees? When do trivial details become vital? Can a pebble destroy an empire if the emperor chokes at dinner? Would the pebble stand accused? Do you ever feel that the thing we call theory and the thing we call art are moving in different directions?”

The April 2022 monthly Cover Story “Mix & Match: Laia Estruch at PUBLICS” is now up on our homepage: www.lttds.org

“On 17 March 2022, the first event of a year-long “Parahosting” collaboration between Latitudes and PUBLICS took place in Helsinki. The Parahosting programme of PUBLICS began in 2018, and it has grown into a key method of decentering the authorship of the curatorial agency through a flexible, evolving, expanding, and sometimes messy, practice of working together.” Continue reading

May 2021 cover story on www.lttds.org

The May 2021 monthly Cover Story ‘RAF goes viral’ is now up on our homepage: www.lttds.org

RAF / Reduce Art Flights is a campaign imploring that the art world (artists, curators, critics, gallerists, collectors, museum directors, etc.) should diminish its use of aeroplanes. It was initiated by the artist Gustav Metzger (1926–2017) on the occasion of the artist’s participation in Skulptur Projekte Münster in 2007, during which 5,000 leaflets based on a 1942 Royal Air Force poster were distributed.

Cover Story—May 2020: Panama, back through the lens

Latitudes' homepage http://www.lttds.org/

The May 2020 monthly Cover Story ‘Panama, back through the lens’ is now up on our homepage: www.lttds.org

April 2020 marked 15 years of Latitudes’ curatorial practice. We’ve long been planning an update and redesign of our website, and with life and work on hold for the last few weeks, we’ve finally had the time to make it happen. The whole site has now been rebuilt: https://www.lttds.org/

The new widescreen home page features Donna Conlon, Jonathan Harker, and Sandino Scheidegger, the latest episode of ‘Incidents (of Travel)’, accompanied by Donna’s and Jonathan’s thoughts on how life has changed in recent weeks in Panama City. 

‘‘Panama is a country of many contrasts, bruised by a variety of social, political, and cultural crises”, writes curator Sandino Scheidegger in the latest edition of ‘Incidents (of Travel)’, in which he spent a day in January with the artists Donna Conlon & Jonathan Harker. “These tensions grow even stronger in its capital, Panama City, where an impressive skyline rises over an often struggling population below it.” Here high on a hill above the urban bustle, Jonathan, Donna, and Sandino clamber along railings and among branches in the Parque Metropolitano near where the duo shot the video ‘Capapults (Tapitapultas)’ (2012) – a slyly humorous take on military history, national identity, consumerism, and waste.”

Latitudes’s 15th anniversary and rebuilt and redesigned website


April marked 15 years of Latitudes’s curatorial practice. We’ve long been planning an update and redesign of our website, and with life and work on hold for the last few weeks, we’ve finally had the time to make it happen. 



The whole site has been rebuilt from the ground up using the Foundation 6 framework. It is now faster, more accessible, and more responsive (it better adapts to whether you’re viewing on a mobile, or whatever size screen). Many of the changes are under the hood, although you’ll notice the larger type size and improved navigation elementsMost importantly, you can now more easily toggle between languages throughout (Spanish ‘ES’ and English ‘EN’). Many of the images will already look much crisper, especially on retina devices, and we’ll gradually be upgrading the rest of the galleries.
Our home page https://www.lttds.org will continue to feature a Cover Story: a monthly focus on a current project, an artwork, artist, or a glimpse from our archive, accompanied by a short caption or narrative. This month the new widescreen image format features Donna Conlon, Jonathan Harker, and Sandino Scheidegger, and the latest episode of ‘Incidents (of Travel)’, accompanied by Donna’s and Jonathan’s thoughts on how life has changed in recent weeks in Panama City.


We’ve eliminated the drop down menu organising our projects by year. Instead the ‘Projects’ page becomes the main hub where tags enable you to filter by year as well as by categories such as ‘Editions’, ‘Editorial’, ‘Exhibitions’, ‘Pedagogy’, ‘Performance’, ‘Public Realm’, ‘Research’, ‘Residencies’, ‘Screenings’ ‘Talks’.


Each individual project page includes a full-width sliding photo gallery, and has clearer access to further photos (from our Flickr), publications, social media archive – accessing posts on twitter or facebook, as well as videos.


Each project now its own ‘Archive’ section reconfigured as an ‘off-canvas’ panel which swoops in to show all the relevant press reviews, as well as posts published on Longitudes, a section which cuts across Latitudes’ projects and research with news, updates, and reportage going back to 2006.



We have revised the ‘About’ page and broken it down into three further categories: ‘People’, ‘Activities’, ‘Press’.



Under ‘Activities’ there is a submenu listing ‘Writing’, ‘Lectures’, ‘Pedagogy’, ‘Awards & Affiliations’, ‘Juries’, ‘Residencies’, ‘Visitor Programmes’. And ‘Press’ is divided into ‘Press Coverage’ and ‘Latitudes in the Media’.



Newsletters is the place to sign-up for our email updates, and continues to archive our past mailings, also offering the possibility of filtering by year.

Reduce Art Flights website refreshed

https://reduceartflights.lttds.org/

The Reduce Art Flights website has had a long-overdue refresh (the first version is from 2008 and originally at reduceartflights.com): it now features a new exhibition history, bibliography and a transcription of the interview with RAF's instigator, the late artist Gustav Metzger (1926–2017).

RAF / Reduce Art Flights is a campaign which upholds that the art world—artists, curators, critics, gallerists, collectors, museum directors, etc.—could or should diminish its use of aeroplanes.

“...it’s a nudge in the ribs as it were to remind people there is a problem and let’s talk about this problem of endless flights here and there. What particularly annoyed me originally was the statement by the organisers of the [2006] Basel art fair that when it comes to taking the fair to Miami, which was planned, everybody could get a 50% reduction on the aeroplane flight. I thought that is just over the top, pumping up the possibility of aeroplane use. So for me, this has very much to do with a rejection of mass transport through the air of course, and through cars and buses, and also a criticism of the art world where everything is out for maximizing everything and in every direction.” — Gustav Metzger

The site is maintained by Latitudes as a resource for the initiative and as a location for future elaborations of its aims.

"4.543 billion. The matter of matter recently opened at the CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, and features the work of more than thirty artists. Curated by Latitudes, the exhibition looks at histories of art as fragments in geological time. The portentous mood of this gallery hinges on combustion and history violently formed through the fundamental reordering of the relations between humans and the rest of nature." Continue reading
