October Gallery is proud to announce that on 13th September, we will open an exhibition of works by Aubrey Williams, including works previously unseen.

Born in Guyana, in 1926, Aubrey Williams’ life and art cannot be defined to one location. This new exhibition at October Gallery will explore how Williams’ oeuvre not only crosses borders between abstract and figurative modes but also between physical and cultural geographies. Exhibiting Williams’ work in the 21st century awakens a new assessment of British art history and challenges the canon. During his lifetime, the British establishment seemingly never allowed artists, including Williams, to move beyond the label of a Caribbean artist. Today, Williams’ work still resists classification. Williams’ Modernist oeuvre is being reborn into a world now ready for his art.
