Latham viewed the role of the artist as one who could not only reflect society through his or her work, but perhaps by going against the norm – could possibly reconfigure reality too.
Although he often courted controversy, Latham became a hugely influential artist who exerted lasting influence over his peers as well as younger generations.
Throughout his career, he associated himself with various international artistic groups – including the Artistic Placement Group which aimed to expand the reach of art and artists into wider society.
One highlight of this exhibition will be his monumental work “Five Sisters”. His iconic “spray and roller” paintings will also be exhibited, as will his “one-second drawings”.
This exhibition is part of the Serpentine’s “John Latham Season”. Check venue website for details of other associated events.
