Aubrey Williams Exhibition

Solo show at Shibuya Tokyu Plaza. 1988
Date: 9 May, 1988 until 15 May, 1988
Organiser: Aquahanier Ltd.

Aubrey Williams Exhibition was a substantial affair, though it ran for a mere six days, at Shibuya Tokyu Plaza, Japan. The exhibition was supported by The British Council, The Arts Council of Great Britain and the Commonwealth Institute. A substantial and extensively illustrated catalogue was produced to acompany the exhibition. The catalogue featured some 60 colour plates, with text in both Japanese and English. The lavish reproductions were divided into three sections. Fully half of the plates were of Williams’ hugely accomplished paintings of birds, produced between 1977 and 1984. Eighteen of the plates related to Williams’ Olmec Maya series, executed between 1982 and 1985. The remaing twelve plates related to Williams’ quest to give visual form to the music of the Russion composer Dmitri Shostakovich, in paintings executed in the early 1980s.
