Jul 10 - 26, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Chelsea Space is delighted to present OBSERVER: John Latham and the Distant Perspective. For the first time, John Latham, a pioneer of British conceptual art, is the focus of an exhibition at Chelsea Space. This exhibition presents work by Latham that employs an aerial viewpoint and investigates how the use of this perspective is positioned in his wider thinking.

Location: Lecture Theatre, Chelsea College of Arts
On July 17th, there will be a curators' talk preceded by a screening of John Latham’s film Erth.
 
First shown as part of Inn7o - Art and Economics at The Hayward Gallery in 1971, John Latham’s Erth utilised recently available images of our planet from space, arial imagery and pages from Encyclopaedia Britannica, with a countdown of duration which embodies Latham's concept of Event Structure and the 'Whole Event'.
 
The curators' talk is led by Brandon Rickett and Ines Basille, students of MA Curating and Collections, Chelsea College of Arts, introducing the curatorial method of the exhibition OBSERVER: John Latham and The Distant Perspective.
