The two Galleries of the Serpentine will be connected in new ways in the spring, with an important show of the work of radical British sculptor and conceptual artist John Latham, alongside a group show of young artists responding to Latham’s holistic and interdisciplinary approach to art and life. Latham has become increasingly recognized as one of the most radical and influential British artists of the second half of the 20th century. 
A hugely significant thinker whose ideas continue to resonate with new generations of artists, Latham’s practice encompassed a wide array of forms, including sculpture, installation, painting, film and performance happenings. Over the run of the exhibition, a series of events will take place at Flat Time House, the south London studio home of John Latham, which he had declared a living sculpture. On view until May 21st 2017.
