'Curating emerging artists' was one of six closed-session 'Professional Encounters' taking place during the 2011 ARCOmadrid fair. At the invitation of Latitudes, 15 international curators gathered during the fair, and delivered 5 minute/10 slides presentations of projects they were currently developing, with the aim of providing a quick framework to share and trigger common points of interest.

In the afternoon Latitudes guided the group through the fair and introduced the participants to artists and gallerists such as Carreras Múgica, Maisterravalbuena and ProjecteSD.
