FTHo Currently Closed to Public Until Further Notice
UPDATE FROM FTHO REGARDING COVID-19
To protect the safety of communities and help to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Flat Time House will be closed to the public. We have made this decision at the recommendation of the World Health Organisation and local public health officials in respective locations to protect the safety of our visitors, staff and artists.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will announce our re-opening as appropriate.
Conservation work to FTHo’s Face sculpture
Seventeen years to the day since the Flat Time House’s famous Face sculpture was completed, the work has been de-installed for extensive conservation work.
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.
Thursday – Sunday 12–6pm for temporary exhibitions
Open by appointment at all other times – call 0207 207 4845
FTHo RENOVATION by EBBA ARCHITECTS
We are excited to announce the commencement of an ambitious new development of the Flat Time House site including new studios and an education space. We are working with EBBA Architects to renovate the outbuildings of Flat Time House, which comprise a former Victorian stable and a garage space attached to the building and leading to FTHo’s garden.
The Impossible University
Meetings Postponed Until Further Notice
After some years of nomadic existence, The Impossible University are taking up residence at Flat Time House from the autumn of 2019. We will continue to gather in the insistent and determined spirit of an anti-institution as a place of exchange and camaraderie that might lead to new ways of working or producing.
NOIT — 5 Bodies as in Buildings
NOIT — 5: bodies as in buildings is a collection of essays, short stories, and images exploring what happens when the domestic, the home, and the body are alienated from their most basic associations and given new ones. In these works, the threshold between house and street, the distinction between the public and private, becomes porous and inexhaustibly complex. NOIT — 5 features works by students from the MA Writing Programme at the Royal College of Art and an afterword by Brian Dillon.
