This Saturday, you are invited to two events that coincide with the final weekend of the exhibition 'John Latham: Anarchive' at the Whitechapel Gallery organised by the Ligatus Research Centre and supported by AHRC and PRS Foundation.
Saturday 4 September at 2pm
A composition and performance by composer/author David Toop based on John Latham's ideas of Flat Time.
David Toop: laptops, flutes, strings, amplified processes, omnipresent score.
The visionary British artist John Latham died on 1st of January 2006. His influence on the visual arts is remarkable and yet consistently under-represented in the literature. His philosophical ideas on Events and Event Structures and 'Flat Time Theory', a unifying overview of the world, are fascinating, complex and worthy of serious study.
As of yesterday, 15 September, Antony Hudek is the new Research Fellow who has joined Ligatus to work on the John Latham Archive. Antony brings strong art historian and archiving experience to the project alongside excellent academic skills. He will be based in both the Flat-Time-House and the Ligatus office and his primary role will be to implement a classification system for the JLA documents based on John Latham's cosmological ideas.
