John Latham was a painter, sculptor, conceptual artist, performance artist and video and film-maker. Born in Rhodesia in 1921, he studied at Chelsea School of Art and taught at St Martins School of Art, London. He founded the Artists Placement Group (APG) in 1968. Latham's film-making began as a means of recording the evolution of his bookworks Unedited Material From Star (1960), but developed to embrace collaborative works with the Event Structure Research Group, abstract animation in the 1960s, and works made for television in the 1990s.
