Constellations - Artist Open Call October 2017 - May 2018
Flat Time House is delighted to launch the open call for Constellations, an exciting opportunity for artists to join a new working group at FTHo created in collaboration with UP Projects.
Taking the form of a working group - a small assembly of people brought together to study a situation or problem, reporting on what has been discovered –Constellations will give six artists the opportunity to come together to study socio-political contexts as the site for their artistic practice.
Running from October 2017 – May 2018, the group will explore different methods and approaches to artistic research and community-orientated practice, through a series of day-long monthly workshops hosted at Flat Time House. Each session will be led by an invited guest, the first four guests include; Ain Bailey, Jasleen Kaur, Rory Pilgrim and Rehana Zaman – the other workshop guests will be invited by the group.
This opportunity is open to artists based in the UK and all six artists will receive a £500 fee for taking part on the programme.
Deadline: 14th August 2017
Programme start date: October 2017

Lina Hermsdorf – Vantage Point Künstlerhaus Bremen
20 May – 13 August 2017
Flat Time House is pleased to collaborate with Künstlerhaus Bremen on Lina Hermsdorf's exhibition Vantage Point with contributions by Casper-Malte Augusta and John Latham and sound design by Marian Mentrup.
Lina Hermsdorf´s exhibitions unfold as time-based processes that place the experience of the viewer at their centre. Their non-linear, polysemous narratives often materialize in installations and performances, with a particular focus on biological phenomena relating to the corporeal and temporal texture of technologically infiltrated bodies. Frequently taking into account the specific histories of her performers, Hermsdorf combines biographical material with a multitude of voices, forming avatar-like characters that meander between virtual and physical realities.
John Latham included in 'VIVA ARTE VIVA' at The Venice Biennale
13 May - 26 November
Seventeen works by John Latham will be included in this year's Venice Biennale, opening to the public on 13 May. The 57th edition, titled 'VIVA ARTE VIVA', is curated by Christine Macel.
This year's Biennale is organized into nine pavilions or 'chapters'. Latham's works will be on view in the 'Pavilion of Artists and Books'.
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.
