'Curating emerging artists' was one of six closed-door Professional Meetings taking place during the 30th edition of ARCOmadrid fair. At the invitation of Latitudes, 15 international curators gathered during the fair, and delivered 5 minute/10 slides presentations of projects they were currently developing, with the aim of sharing and triggering common points of interest. In the afternoon Latitudes guided the group through the fair and introduced the participants to Spanish artists and gallerists such as CarrerasMúgica, Maisterravalbuena, Estrany de la Mota and ProjecteSD, amongst others.
