  • William Kentridge

    Although there’s an entire new generation of fascinating South African artists at work today, perhaps the most remarkable recent addition to the international scene has been William Kentridge. The artist’s labor-intensive drawings, which form the basis of his animated films, are so impressive that they may overshadow the fact that Kentridge produces work in a number of media. (He’s even recently directed an opera, Ulysses, which made its debut last year.) In Brussels, Palais des Beaux-Arts curator Piet Coessens has gathered a wide-ranging selection of the artist’s work—more than forty installations, films, and drawings, much of it political in nature—from the last nine years.
