ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in South Africa in 1955, William Kentridge has, over three decades, combined drawing and animation with film and performance to create a multidisciplinary practice that is simultaneously political and romantic. Kentridge was the recipient of a large-scale exhibition organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Florida's Norton Museum of Art. The exhibition was on view at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, before traveling to museums in Paris, Vienna, Jerusalem, Amsterdam, and Vancouver. Included in the exhibition were works related to the artist's staging and design of The Nose.
