After over two years of collaboration between Latitudes and New York artist Lawrence Weiner (1942, New York), the project ‘THE CREST OF A WAVE’ will be presented on 8 October at the Nivell Zero space at Fundació Suñol in October, coinciding with the beginning of the 2008–9 season.

‘THE CREST OF A WAVE’ is a four part project manifested as a distributed ephemeral sculpture, an installation, a sound work and an action – together each asks what might constitute a public sculpture. Weiner's new work triggers a chronicle of Spanish mercantile, maritime and equestrian power, textiles, trade and occupation.

In Barcelona his work has been seen in: 'Between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean Sea', Fundació Espai Poblenou (1995); 'Behind the facts. Interfunktionen 1968-1975', Fundació Miró (2004) and the 'Public Space / Two Audiences. Works and Documents from the Herbert Collection
', MACBA (2006). In Spain, his work can be seen until the 26 October in the solo show 'Forever And A Day' at the Centro Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga.

Recent reviews: Roberta Smith, 'The Well-Shaped Phrase as Art ' (New York Times, 16 November 2007) and Steven Stern's Frieze review (March 2008) on Weiner's travelling retrospective ‘AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE’ (Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and soon in K21 Kunsthsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf).
