“...It contained seven objects. The slender fluted bone, surely formed for flight, surely from the wing of some large bird. Three archaic circuitboards, faced with mazes of gold. A smooth white sphere of baked clay. An age-blackened fragment of lace. A fingerlength segment of what she assumed was bone from a human wrist, grayish white, inset smoothly with the silicon shaft of a small instrument that must once have ridden flush with the surface of the skin - but the thing’s face was seared and blackened.”
William Gibson, “Count Zero”, 1986

John Latham (1921 – 2006) is widely considered a pioneer of British conceptual art.
His multifaceted practice encompasses sculpture, installation, painting, film, land art, engineering, found-object, assemblage, performance happenings and theoretical writings, the diversity of which is galvanised by his unique understanding of our place in the universe.
This publication traces the trajectory of Latham’s practice and brings together archival material, including documentary photographs, texts, correspondence and various ephemera, in order to build a picture of the artist’s life and work. Latham saw the artist as holding up a mirror to society: an individual whose dissent from the norm could lead to a profound reconfiguration of reality as we know it.
Latham has been associated with several national and international artistic movements, including the first phase of conceptual art in the 1960s. He was an important contributor to the Destruction in Art Symposium of 1966, and also a co-founding member of the Artist Placement Group APG (1966-89).
The Serpentine Gallery exhibition (and this accompanying catalogue) spans Latham’s career to include his iconic spray and roller paintings; his one-second drawings; films such as Erth (1971), and Latham’s monumental work, Five Sisters (1976) from his Scottish Office placement with APG.
Texts by Rita Donagh, Amira Gad, Richard Hamilton, Katherine Jackson, Elisa Kay, Adam Kleinman, Noa Latham, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Yana Peel, Cally Spooner, Barbara Steveni, David Toop.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition, A World View: John Latham at Serpentine Gallery, London, 2 March – 21 May 2017.
