John Latham: Time-base and the Universe

John Latham: Time-base and the Universe
Library Shelf Location 18.LATH
Publication Date Dec 2006
Description Text is by David Thorp, Noa Latham, and Stephen Foster. Art, throughout history, has provided a vehicle for ideas. British artist John Latham (1921-2006) applied this to the biggest subjects of all: What is the Universe? What is God? What is knowledge? Latham aspired that art could form a point of convergence for opposing beliefs within society. Both acclaimed and vilified in his lifetime, Latham is one of the few genuine radicals of British art. It is published to accompany the exhibition John Latham: Time Base and the Universe at John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Centre, New York. The exhibition was conceived with the artist prior to his death in January 2006, and includes sculptures, book reliefs, installations, film, text works and glass pieces.
