The work of South African artist William Kentridge tracks a personal route across the fraught legacy of apartheid and colonialism through the innovative use of charcoal drawing, prints, collages, stop-animation, film, and theater. Kentridge sees his work as rooted in Johannesburg - the city in which he was born and continues to work today. In 2010, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, organized a large-scale exhibition featuring nearly three decades of the artist’s work. In addition, Kentridge recently organized a staging of Dmitri
Shostakovich’s The Nose at the Metropolitan Opera.
