FTHo > Open Call for Delta (Δ) Research Placement (Online)
Flat Time House (FTHo) was the studio home of John Latham (1921-2006), recognised as one of the most significant and influential British post-war artists. In 2003, Latham declared the house a living sculpture, naming it FTHo after his theory of time, ‘Flat Time’. Until his death, Latham opened his door to anyone interested in thinking about art. It is in this spirit that Flat Time House opened in 2008 as a gallery with a programme of exhibitions and events exploring the artist's practice, his theoretical ideas and their continued relevance. It also provides a centre for alternative learning, which includes the John Latham archive, and an artist's residency space.
The Delta (Δ) Research Placement is open to artists to undertake a period of remote research with the John Latham Archive and to develop a digital project for a new experimental online platform for FTHo.
Two selected artists will each be offered a fee of £1000. Artists should be able to undertake research in August and September with the aim of a digital outcome able to launch online in October or November.
Applications are welcome from artists based in the UK and internationally. The organisers are keen to receive applications from artists who live outside of Greater London, or can otherwise outline why they may find it difficult to access the physical archive at FTHo either due to access needs, caring responsibilities or other reasons that can be expressed in the application.
FTHo welcome applications from artists with dyslexia, dyspraxia, and other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) and from artists who identify as D/deaf, disabled and neurodiverse. Applications may be made using alternative formats such as video or audio (max duration 20 minutes), rather than in writing.
Deadline: 20 July 2020
