About Latitude

Latitude – Platform for Brazilian Art Galleries Abroad is a program developed to promote Brazil’s contemporary art market internationally. Created in 2007, in 2011 it became a partnership between Associação Brasileira de Arte Contemporânea – ABACT (Brazilian Association of Contemporary Art) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) with the goal of creating business opportunities for the sector abroad, mainly through professional training, support for international placement and cultural and commercial promotion. As a requirement to become a member of ABACT, all participating galleries must work in the primary market. While it is not mandatory for ABACT members to join Latitude, at the moment its entire membership of 49 galleries has opted to take part in the project. These galleries are located across eight different Brazilian states and represent more than 1000 contemporary artists. Latitude aims to generate opportunities in the art world abroad, through funding, supporting and promoting the international insert, both commercially and culturally.

History

Over the past 10 years of activity, the number of businesses participating in Latitude has grown from 5 to 49 and includes the country’s leading galleries. In order to attend a variety of demands, from art galleries in different levels of professionalisation, the project offers support to its gallery participants across different programs. The exports of galleries participating in Latitude have grown significantly in the past years. While in 2007, the total of exports by these galleries was US$ 6 million, by 2015, this had grown to US$ 70 million – close to double than the year before. In 2016, the galleries participating in Latitude represented 41% of the total exports in this sector in Brazil.

Since April 2011, when ABACT took over the leadership of Latitude in collaboration with Apex-Brasil, nearly 50 initiatives took place across 26 international art fairs, with approximately 300 sources of funding offered to Latitude participating galleries. Throughout this same period, Latitude has brought around 220 international curators, institution directors, collectors, art writers and journalists from more than 15 countries to visit and become familiar with the art scene in Brazil via 20 Art Immersion Trips, creating opportunities for future business, projects and collaborations. Latitude has also organised and published five editions of its renowned sectorial survey, a thorough study mapping the current Brazilian primary art market.
