Saturday 18 September 2021 3pm
Artist Kelly Lloyd is currently undertaking a research residency at Flat Time House focusing on John Latham’s collection of books. Latham’s library, which includes books intended for the making of artwork as well as for research purposes, has never been catalogued or the subject of sustained investigation. Since March 2021 Lloyd has explored the library with particular interest in Latham's personal books vs. books for work, marginalia and other physical interventions.
Kelly Lloyd will present her research on Saturday, 18 September 2021 at 3pm. Specifically, she will present a speculative library (2006-2021), and read excerpts from a small publication containing thoughts on personal book collections as portraits and the place of books in the archiving and preservation of artist homes and studios, as well as reflections on conversations with Flat Time House Director/Curator Gareth Bell-Jones, Noa Latham, son of John Latham and Barbara Steveni and Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Calgary and Lisa Stone, Curator of the Roger Brown Study Collection from 1996–2020.
Event free but booking essential
A publication produced by Kelly Lloyd as a result of the residency is available to download as a pdf via the artist's website here.
