William Kentridge is one of South Africa’s pre-eminent artists, internationally acclaimed for his films, drawings, theatre and opera productions; regular visitors will recall our exhibition of his film work in the Gallery. Kentridge is also an innovative and prolific printmaker. In the past two and a half decades he has produced more than 400 artist’s prints, including etchings, engravings, aquatints, silkscreens, linocuts and lithographs; many of his key themes are explored in his prints and he has said that there have been ‘many projects that have ended up as either a piece of theatre or an animated film which have their origins in printmaking’.
This exhibition from the South Bank includes prints from 1988 to the present, with a stress on experimental and serial works. His distinctive use of light, shadow and silhouettes, his concern with memory and perspective, themes of humanity’s journey through life and his absorption in literary texts, are all strongly in evidence.
The education pack is available on our Issuu page.
