Flat Time House Institute – Living Sculpture, Gallery, Archive and Centre for Alternative Learning
WE ARE RECRUITING - Incidental Unit Programme Coordinator
The Incidental Unit (IU) was formed in 2016 with direct support of the Artist Placement Group (APG - 1966-89), and O+I (1989-2009), in order to continue to develop a rigorous approach to socially engaged art practice today. IU provides critical support space in which to discuss and exchange ideas with artists, curators and 'incidental persons' without the expectations or evaluative frameworks of an artistic commission, gallery briefing or social project. To this end, IU draws out key ideas, methods, process and rationale for maintaining the independent and critical work of artists and curators, connecting the historical legacy of APG with the complex nature of social practice now.
In 2018-19 the IU is working towards six public meetings at institutions in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle followed by a large-scale launch event in London. We are recruiting an individual to coordinate the activity and programming of the Incidental Unit over this time period.
Deadline for applications: 19 August

Artist Studio Museum Network
Flat Time House is delighted to announce we are now part of the Artist Studio Museum Network
The future of Flat Time House, Peckham, the studio home of the late British artist John Latham, has been secured. The Estate of John Latham and Flat Time House Institute are delighted to announce that a purchaser for 210 Bellenden Road has come forward, generously allowing Flat Time House Institute to continue operating in its current premises. The Santarelli Family and Dino and Ernesta Santarelli Foundation will take ownership of the property that accommodates Flat Time House and the institute will continue to operate independently in the original studio and home of John Latham.
John Mallinson (1942–2019)
Above the famous book sculpture cantilevered through the façade of Flat Time House is a vertical, two-dimensional echo, similarly presenting two books interleaved. This image on metal, produced at the same time as its sculptural equivalent and cemented to the front of the building, captures a print by John Mallinson, a close friend to John Latham and Barbara Steveni.
It is of great sadness for all at Flat Time House and John Latham Foundation to reflect upon the passing of John Mallinson in August this year. We send our heartfelt love and condolences to Tatiana and their family.
FTHo open by appointment
Flat Time House is currently in-between temporary exhibitions but we are open by appointment to view the house and the permanent display of John Latham works in the front 'Mind' gallery which give an introduction to Flat Time.
Please email email@example.com or call 02072074845 to arrange a visit.
