Lawrence Weiner: Latitudes Anniversary Tote Bag (ONLY 1 LEFT!)

25.00 50.00

This bag is one of four limited-edition silkscreened totes produced on the occasion of our Barcelona friends,  Latitudes’ 10th Anniversary. The bags are made from natural durable cotton canvas with a reinforced base. Each tote features a press-stud closure, an internal pocket with a zip (never loose your keys again!), an adjustable shoulder strap, as well as smaller handles for carrying like a briefcase.

The full tote edition has been featured in the exhibition “A short history of the art book bag (and the things that go in them)” (24 August–24 October 2015) at the Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong curated by Ingrid Chu (Curator of Public Programmes).


An artwork by Lawrence Weiner which reads “A CLOTH OF COTTON WRAPPED AROUND A HORSESHOE OF IRON TOSSED UPON THE CREST OF A WAVE”. Latitudes commissioned this new work on the occasion of his 2008 solo exhibition at Barcelona’s Fundació Suñol, from where it unfolded as a four-part project. 1: The distribution of a public sculpture in the form of 300,000 sugar sachets sweetening 70 cafés in the city. 2: As a statement painted on a wall. 3: As a musical composition. 4: As an action at the sea wall of Barcelona’s port. Through language and materials, the statement appears to comprise an account of Spain’s mercantile and maritime history, its equestrian and commercial power. To be thrown in the sea at the user’s discretion. Horseshoe not included.

This bag is one of four limited-edition silkscreened totes produced on the occasion of Latitudes’ 10th Anniversary.
