John-Paul latham in conversation with Harriet Latham
One of John Latham’s three children, John-Paul Latham will be in discussion with granddaughter Harriet Latham to recall FTHo as a domestic environment and home. In a convivial atmosphere they will talk on how John Latham lived and worked in the space from the early 1980s up to its transformation to a living sculpture in 2003 and how that led to the founding of the art space it is today.
