Professor Robert Williams is an artist and academic, he trained at Lancaster University and at Leeds University where he was a Henry Moore Scholar in Sculpture Studies in 1990. He has been leader of the Fine Art Programmes at Cumbria Institute of the Arts/University of Cumbria since 1998. Robert’s recent practice includes a number of collaborative projects with the American artist Mark Dion in the USA and UK including The Tasting Garden at Lancaster (1998), The Tate Thames Dig (1999), Theatrum Mundi: Armarium at Jesus College, Cambridge (2001) and the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao (2011), Mark Dion: Collaborations at Hartford CT (2003), Down the Garden Path: Artists Gardens After Modernism at the Queens Museum of Art, New York (2005) and a series of prints made with Dion at Cumbria Institute of the Arts (University of Cumbria) which formed part of the London Underground Art Project associated with Dion’s Microcosmographia at the South London Art Gallery. NADFLY has undertaken projects throughout Scotland and beyond. There is a drive to genuinely interact with local communities, promote art in unusual places and support artists with national and international reputations to make new work. This has taken NADFLY to the UK, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Sweden, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Pakistan, Cuba, Canada, USA and Japan. Each project aims to be innovative, ambitious and meaningful for both the participants and the public.
