Lath

John Latham 2 May – 16 June 2018

Pioneering Conceptual artist John Latham (1921–2006) remains a vital force and inspiration. Preoccupied with time, he was visionary in mapping systems of knowledge, whether scientific or religious. He developed his own philosophy of time, known as “Event Structure,” which proposes that the most basic component of reality is not the particle, as purported by physics, but the “least event,” or shortest departure from a state of nothing. Following a celebration of his work at the Serpentine Galleries in London last year, as well as his participation in the 2017 Venice Biennale curated by Christine Macel, the exhibition at Lisson Gallery will be Latham’s first ever gallery show in New York and his first in the United States since 1996. Through installation and floor-based works, the exhibition will showcase Latham’s extraordinary practice alongside his lasting legacy as an artist and thinker, as well as his abiding contributions to developments in Conceptual art.
