William Kentridge, 1999
A Natural History of the Studio
In conjunction with the Five Themes exhibition, ACMI proudly presents an evening with William Kentridge.
A versatile artist whose work combines the political with the poetic, William Kentridge will take a look through the natural history of the studio and its position as a safe environment for artists to explore productive stupidity.
Dealing with subjects as sobering as apartheid, colonialism, and totalitarianism, Kentridge himself has a long history in the studio, with works in animated films, prints, books, collage, sculpture, and the performing arts.
This event is supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation.
Available as a double pass in conjunction with 21st Century Museums: SFMOMA
. Double passes can only be purchased by phone (03 8663 2583) or in person at the Tickets & Information Desk.
