"A Lesson in Sculpture with John Latham" addresses his visionary contribution to the study of sculpture, bringing sixteen works by Latham, spanning 1958 to 2005, into conversation with sixteen sculptures by artists working across the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Latham dedicated his life to building a cohesive world view, unifying science and the humanities. He described his position not as that of an artist, rather as an 'incidental person' - a creative and independent part of the social network, charged with creating independent thought. Taking Latham's multifarious practice as its guide, A Lesson in Sculpture with John Latham proposes that each work by Latham teaches how post-war sculpture developed internationally.
