Dr Magz Hall, Senior Lecturer in Radio, has been working on an installation, “Skyport”, for the exhibition Air Matters: Learning from Heathrow at Watermans Arts Centre, Brentford, 8th October–31st Dec 2019. The exhibition and surrounding events will explore the politics of air at London Heathrow. For some, the air at Heathrow is a space of networks and travel. For others, it is what they must breathe. The conflation of diverse requirements within one locale presents a significant societal challenge that has implications for sustainable development, well-being, and dignity. Air Matters responds to these challenges, bringing together newly-commissioned artworks, workshops and a symposium.

Charles Williams’ work is very like short stories. He tries to cram everything he is thinking about, other paintings old and new, newspaper stories, what he saw on his holidays or when he last went to the shops into each painting. Sometimes characters and places evolve; sometimes they just appear and then disappear. The chief studio rule is no sketches, no photos, no studies, nothing. People seem to assume that the paintings come from somewhere, but they are simply a la tête. He cannot be bothered with stopping and fiddling around with those things, or doing that projecting thing.
Born in Evanston, Illinois, USA, Charles Williams was educated at Kent College in Canterbury, Maidstone College of Art and the Royal Academy, London. He was elected to the New English Art Club (NEAC) in 1996 and in 1999 was a founder member of the Stuckist group. He has shown his work in London, the UK and abroad, including a solo exhibition at the Bakersfield Museum of Art in California. He is the author of Basic Drawing (Robert Hale, 2011) and Basic Watercolour (Robert Hale, 2014).
You still have time to catch Bryan Hawkins, Eddie McMillan and Pete Wallace’s installation in Canterbury Cathedral.
City of the Imagination
Venue: Cathedral Chapter House, Cathedral Precincts, Canterbury
Opening Times: 10am–5pm (15th-22nd October 2016, closed Sunday 16 October)
William Blake declared “every age is a Canterbury Pilgrimage”.
City of the Imagination links ancient forms of light and sound to 21st century technology within the magnificent architecture of the Chapter House and celebrates Canterbury Cathedral as at the heart of an ‘imagined’, spiritual, artistic and inspirational city. The installation will reflect the contemplative power and grandeur of the Chapter House alongside Canterbury’s imaginal, traditional and contemporary stories.
Curated and created by Bryan Hawkins, Eddie McMillan and Pete Wallace, School of Media Art and Design at Canterbury Christ Church University.
