Aubrey Williams’s work and life continue to provoke debate, revealing as much about his work as about the cultural and political context in which it is viewed today. To coincide with a Tate Britain display of the artist’s archive, this study day brings together key critics, curators and artists including Guy Brett, Anne Walmsley, Dr Hassan Arero, Sonia Boyce Dr Leon Wainwright and film maker Imruh Bakari to reconsider his role and legacy in British art.
