Library Shelf Location 18.LATH
Publication Date 2017

John Latham (1921-2006) is widely considered one of the pioneers of British conceptual art.

His work encompassed sculpture, installation, painting, ?lm, land art, engineering, assemblage, performances and happenings and theoretical writings; he is probably most famous for his burning book towers ("skoobs") and his light-show collaborations with Pink Floyd. The incredible diversity of Latham's work was part of a lifelong quest to understand our place in the universe.

The first comprehensive volume on this cult artist, John Latham: A World View 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.
