Testimonials


“I enjoyed the trip immensely. I found the activities well planned and expertly organized. The weather was absolutely perfect and the schedule, while quite packed, was somewhat generous with free time and meals that could be planned individually. All amenities such as bus, hotel and so on were well organized and of good quality.” Pauline Yao


“I got the sense during my stay that the galleries are really working together to create a stable platform of activity, both a cultural and economic investment, and the promotion of Brazilian artists. I do think it will eventually be necessary for both the galleries and the institutions to incorporate a more international approach to the selection of artists represented and exhibited so that contemporary Brazilian artists are inserted into an international discourse.” Adrienne Drake


“This was my first in depth experience with contemporary Brazilian art, even though I had met Brazilian galleries at fairs in Miami and New York. I was very impressed with the Latitude initiative.” Barbara Kutscher
