William Kentridge

William Kentridge (b. 1955, Johannesburg, South Africa) grew up in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, and he has continued to live there throughout his life. His studio practice is inherently collaborative and expansive, spanning drawing, filmmaking, printmaking, sculpture, theater, opera, and installation. Recent major exhibitions of his work have been shown at Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland (2019); and a traveling exhibition which opened at the Whitechapel Gallery, London in 2016 and was shown at subsequent venues internationally. Kentridge has participated in Documenta (2012, 2002, 1997) as well as the Venice Biennale (2015, 2005, 1999 and 1993). The artist lives and works in Johannesburg.
