Join us for a public presentation by Latitudes curators Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna, and a performance by artist Laia Estruch, on Thursday 17th of March 2022 at 5–7pm.

At PUBLICS Laia will present Mix (2021–ongoing), a solo performance compilation that revisits the diverse voiced sounds, resonances, and articulations she has developed and learned throughout her projects to date. An exercise in sonic recall and muscle memory, Mix is a live non-chronological edit that extracts the most ephemeral aspect of her practice – the voice – while exploring it as a kind of organ of the body, and as tool for sculpting air.

Founded in 2005, Latitudes has worked in a variety of formats and situations including more than 50 projects encompassing exhibitions, public realm commissions, performance productions, film screenings, editorial and discursive programmes. Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa Luna studied critical fine art practice (1998) and history of art (2000), respectively, and met in 2002 while studying curating at the Royal College of Art, London. Since 2015 Andrews has been a contributing editor at frieze magazine, where he has written regularly since 2004. Cánepa Luna is a regular contributor to art-agenda and was secretary of the board of Hangar, Barcelona (2015–2019).

Laia Estruch studied at The Cooper Union, New York (2010). She has had solo exhibitions at the Fundació Joan Brossa (2020–2021); Capella de Sant Roc, Valls (2019); and Fundació Joan Miró (2019). Her group exhibitions include Panorama 21: Notes for an Eye Fire, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (2021–2022), La cuestión es ir tirando, Centro Cultural de España (2020), and Back to School, Fundación Rafael Botí (2018). In 2022 she won the 6th Premio Cervezas Alhambra de Arte Emergente and in 2021 she was awarded the Premi Ciutat de Barcelona.
