William Kentridge

Lisa G. Corrin, Class of 1956 Director

This film is the first of three exhibitions presented this year featuring the work of pioneering artist William Kentridge (South African, b. 1955). Working across media and embracing video, sculpture, printmaking, and performance, Kentridge works in the tradition of socially and politically engaged artists, such as William Hogarth, Francisco Goya, Honoré Daumier, and Kathe Kollwitz. His work reflects on the human condition, specifically the oppression of apartheid and the ways in which our personal and collective histories are intertwined.
