"William Kentridge: A View of Personal Conflicts Set Against the Background of South Africa"
2001-02-28 until 2001-05-13
Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Washington, DC, USA

An artists view of personal conflicts set against the background of South Africa is revealed in this exhibition of ten short animated films and some 60 related charcoal drawings by William Kentridge (b. 1955). The Johannesburg-based, European-descended artistís narratives of social inequity, industrial pillage and personal pathos fill six mini-theaters and several adjacent galleries.

Co-organized by the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the show travels next to New York, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and Cape Town. (Staci Borrus, Dan Cameron and Neal Benezra, joint curators; catalog by Harry N. Abrams with several essays). Kentridge is also featured in the exhibition Encounters with the Contemporary at the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution (through January 6, 2002).
