Art Immersion Trip: Two Destinations

Art Immersion Trip

The proposal of Art Immersion Trip: Two destinations was to conduct an off season trip - outside the period of major events in the art field - facilitating the presence of guests and making it possible to visit the member galleries.

This activity focused on American curators, considering Getty Foundation's project "Pacific Standard Time", which will promote a gigantic circuit exhibition of Latin American art in over 40 institutions in California in 2017.

After a programme in São Paulo - conducted with the support of SP-Arte / Foto - each guest had the option to choose, individually, a second destination among cities with Latitude member galleries. Four guests traveled to Rio de Janeiro, one to Curitiba and one to Salvador.
