Raimond Chaves & Gilda Mantilla exhibition 'Observaciones sobre la ciudad de polvo', ProjecteSD, Barcelona

Following their 2007 exhibition 'Mal de América' at ProjecteSD in Barcelona, Raimond Chaves (Bogotá, 1963) & Gilda Mantilla (Los Angeles, 1967) opened the exhibition 'Observaciones sobre la ciudad de polvo' (Observations around the city of dust) on Friday 5 June, which remains open until August 2010.

The works present a reading of the Peruvian capital Lima, the city where the artists currently live, and inspired by its peculiar climate: "a city with an opaque atmosphere, cloudy and little renewed, due mostly to the city location. Encircled by the Northern mountain range, the city holds the vapours coming from both the coast and the perspiration of the fertile vegetation that surrounds it, and given the weakness of southern winds, the fog cannot overcome the moutain tops" (quote by Hipólito Unanue included in the press release).

'Observaciones sobre la ciudad de polvo' presents a range of delicate two and three dimensional works made out of recycled cardboard (the tones ranging from grey to brick to beige in reference to Lima's climate) as well as wood and acrylic. A related series is concurrently shown at Galeria Revólver in Lima (until 19 June). The project was awarded with a Fundación Marcelino Botín grant (2008–9).

Chaves & Mantilla have collaborated since 2001, and have published books including Hangueando Periódico de Cordel – Descarga Cultural en Puerto Rico (2004) and Dibujando América (2009) amongst others. They recently participated in the 27ª Bienal de Sao Paulo (2006) and the II trienal Poli/Gráfica de San Juan, Latinoamérica and the Caribean (2009).

Chaves is giving a lecture on Tuesday 8 June, 19.30.
Limited seating capacity. RSVP to [email protected]

Simon Fujiwara wins the 2010 Cartier Award

Frieze Foundation has recently announced the 2010 Cartier Winner: Berlin-based British/Japanese artist Simon Fujiwara (1982). The prize is addressed to artists not living in the UK and covers coproduction costs of up to £10,000, a £1,000 artist’s fee, per diems, travel expenses and a studio residency at Gasworks in London from August to October 2010.

According to the press release "at Frieze Art Fair 2010 Fujiwara plans to present a new site-specific work, Frozen: an installation based on the fictive premise that an ancient lost city has been discovered beneath the site of the fair."

Fujiwara presented 'The Museum of Incest' during the 2009 Frieze in the newly inaugurated section FRAME (see Latitudes' post here) with Frankfurt–based gallery Galerie Neue Alte Brücke.

Before then, a version of the museum was presented at the Latitudes-curated exhibition 'Provenances' at Umberto di Marino, Naples, during which 'The Incest Museum: A Guided Tour' was published by Archive Books.

Fujiwara will participate in the forthcoming 29th Bienal de Sao Paulo (25 September–12 December 2010), Manifesta 8 in Murcia (2 October 2010-9 January 2011), Performa, the 2011 edition of the New York performance biennial and a solo exhibition at TATE, St.Ives (2011).

The 2009 Cartier Award winner was Jordan Wolfson (New York, 1980) – see Latitudes' post here and an exhibition review by Max Andrews' from Latitudes here) and the 2008 winner was Cuban artist Wilfredo Prieto (1978) (see Latitudes' post here and artist profile here).
