"I am interested in a political art, that is to say an art of
ambiguity, contradiction, uncompleted gestures and uncertain
ending - an art (and a politics) in which optimism is kept in
check, and nihilism at bay" --William Kentridge.
South Africa's foremost contemporary artist, Kentridge's work
is exhibited widely within and outside of South Africa, with
shows currently in Miami, San Francisco, and Dublin museums.
Kentridge comes to the University of Chicago through the
Marjorie Kovler Visiting Fellows Program and will receive the
University's Jesse L. Rosenberger Medal for an outstanding
contribution to humanity; recent recipients of the medal have
included Toni Morrison, Pierre Boulez, and Sir George Solti.
