Latitudes is an independent curatorial office founded in April 2005 by Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna. It works in an international context from and in Barcelona, Spain. Latitudes initiates and develops contemporary art projects in association with institutions, and collaborates with artists in productions encompassing a range of organisational forms and scales: display and exhibition genres, editorial and publishing practices, and different forms of assemblage, hosting and programming, as well as theoretical and interpretative contexts.
"Our point of departure is to advocate the work of artists we believe to be critically relevant to our times. Ongoing research includes: micro-historical practices, context-specific, narrative- and process-based art, expectations of public participation, the function of the duo, and how art and artefacts relate to obsolescence and cultural value."
