A World View: John Latham

Serpentine Galleries, London

2 Mar - 21 May 2017

As a pioneer of British conceptual art, John Latham (1921-2006) has exerted a powerful and lasting influence, not only on his peers but on generations of younger artists. This spring, the Serpentine hosts a new exhibition that encompasses all strands of Latham’s extraordinary practice, including sculpture, installation, painting, film, land art, engineering, found-object assemblage, performance and the artist’s theoretical writings. Over the course of the exhibition, Flat Time House, the artist’s studio home in Peckham, south London, will open to the public, hosting a programme of workshops and events. Find out more about the ‘World View’ exhibition from the Serpentine’s website.
