Aubrey Williams: The Realm of the Sun
Thursday 8th October-Wednesday 18th November
This Black History Month will explore the work of Guyanese artist Aubrey Williams who was an integral part of CAM (Caribbean Artists Movement) in England during the 1960s. Artist facilitators will integrate this significant time in history while examining his abstract paintings.
Williams then created in the 1980s a ‘Shostakovich’ series which responded to close listening of the symphonies and string quartets of one of the greatest composers of the mid-twentieth century. This connection with music will be the inspiration for these workshops which will closely explore the relationship between music, improvisation, language and art.
