A private non-profit organization created in 2007, the Brazilian Association of Contemporary Art (ABACT) is currently comprised of 48 art galleries in the primary market, representing seven Brazilian states, and directly involved in developing the careers of over a thousand artists.

Recognizing the fundamental role that contemporary art plays in the construction and exportation of a modern image of Brazilian thought, ABACT has taken on the mission of expanding cultural exchange, promoting activities to professionalize and reduce bureaucracy in the market and fomenting dialogue and education surrounding the contemporary art sector in Brazil, placing value on the different stages of production and those responsible for them.

In partnership with Apex-Brasil, ABACT has administered and operated the Latitude Project since April of 2011.
