WILLIAM KENTRIDGE
Thick Time
21 September 2016 – 15 January 2017

South African artist William Kentridge (b.1955, Johannesburg) is renowned for his animated expressionist drawings and films exploring time, the history of colonialism and the aspirations and failures of revolutionary politics.

In this major exhibition of six large-scale installations by the artist, music and drama are ruptured by revolution, exile and scientific advancement.

Highlights include the film work Second-hand Reading (2013), installation O Sentimental Machine (2015) and The Refusal of Time (2012), an immersive work created with composer Philip Miller, projection designer Catherine Meyburgh, choreographer Dada Masilo, scientist Peter Galison and collaborators from around the world.

The exhibition is co-produced with Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Austria and Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark and tours to the Whitworth University of Manchester, England.
