Coming Soon: Edward Krasiński Solidarity Avenue/Aleja Solidarności
9 October – 29 November | Opening 8 October 6.30–8.30pm
This exhibition brings together artworks and archival material documenting Edward Krasiński’s apartment installation, paralleling and contrasting it with the work of John Latham and the living sculpture of Flat Time House. Organised in partnership with Avant-Garde Institute, which is run by Foksal Gallery Foundation, the exhibition includes works by the two main protagonists, films by Babette Mangolte and Ryszard Waśko, and photographs by Marek Niemirski, Eustachy Kossakowski, and Krzysztof Wojciechowski. Organised with Avant-Garde Institute, Foksal Gallery Foundation and culture.pl
22 August – 19 September | Opening 21 August 6–9pm
'Common Enemies' is an exhibition of work from Julika Gittner’s year-long Incidental Person residency with Flat Time House and Southwark Council’s Planning Department.
The fundraising campaign to raise capital for FTHo Institute to secure its premises and place it on a sustainable footing has proven unsuccessful in the present climate. FTHo will continue with a vibrant programme until the house closes in summer 2016, and thereafter the institute’s ambition is to transform into another manifestation, the details of which are to be announced later this year.
Flat Time House (FTHo) was the studio home of John Latham (1921-2006), recognised as one of the most significant and influential British post-war artists. In 2003, Latham declared the house a living sculpture, naming it FTHo after his theory of time, ‘Flat Time’. Until his death, Latham opened his door to anyone interested in thinking about art. It is in this spirit that Flat Time House opened in 2008 as a gallery with a programme of exhibitions and events exploring the artist's practice, his theoretical ideas and their continued relevance. It also provides a centre for alternative learning, which includes the John Latham archive, and an artist's residency space.
NOIT – 2
Published June 2014
Flat Time House is pleased to announce the publication of the second issue of NOIT, FTHo's creative journal published in conjunction with Camberwell Press. NOIT–2, guest edited by Lisa Le Feuvre, Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute, considers how burning, an action predominant in Latham's ideas, has been deployed by artists in various ways.
