Lecture: William Kentridge
Hosted by College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts on February 28, 2011
Best known for animated films based on charcoal drawings, William Kentridge's works have propelled him into the realm of South Africa's top artists. His animations, focused on time and change, are often autobiographical, as an individual (Kentridge includes his self-portrait in many of his pieces) and as a South African (many of his works concern social and political issues). Kentridge speaks about time pre- and post-Einstein's theory of relativity and how it relates to art as part of the Seventh Annual Tim Hamill Visiting Artist Lecture series.
