APG and John Latham
Tuesday 23 October 2012, 6.30pm

This fourth public discussion based on APG’s discursive format The Sculpture looks at the complex and often problematic position of John Latham within APG. His 'time-based' theories according to which space and objects are displaced by time and events, played a significant role in how APG identified itself and defined his work on placement with the Scottish Office and the National Coal Board. His re-configuration of the artist as an 'incidental person' led to conflict amongst the Group's members. This discussion – moderated by Claire Louise Staunton (Director of Flat Time House) with participants including Clive Phillpot, Gavin Wade, Antony Hudek and Barbara Steveni – consider to what extent Latham's work and ideas have come to shape what we know as APG.
