William Kentridge: Felix in Exile

September 18, 2007 - November 18, 2007

This film is the first of three exhibitions presented this year featuring the work of pioneering South African artist William Kentridge. 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.
