Location

Phyllis Wattis Theater

Overview

South African artist Kentridge creates profound works deploying charcoal drawings as the basis for animated films. Kentridge's labor-intensive technique involves making a drawing, filming it as a single frame, erasing, redrawing, and filming the new frame, continuing the cycle until he has a completed film. Throughout his career, Kentridge has moved between film, drawing, and theater to explore the difficult legacy of apartheid and colonialism. Join the artist for a discussion of his art practice and his influences in this evening program.
