William Kentridge: Tate Modern Artists

South African artist William Kentridge is one of the most important contemporary artists at work today. Born in Johannesburg in 1955, his work draws on the traditions of early European modernism to provide a unique commentary on the political life of his home country and on power relationships in the wider world. Focusing on subjects such as colonialism, apartheid, and totalitarianism, he satirizes the status quo without being politically prescriptive--somehow commenting on human existence itself. He works in many different media, making prints, books, collage, tapestry, and sculpture, and even directing and designing operas at some of the world's leading opera houses, including the Metropolitan Opera, New York.

Accessible and authoritative, this book is the perfect overview of one of the 21st century's most complex yet engaging artists. Paperback, 128 pages, 10.6" x 8.25", Tate Publishing, 2012.

MCA DNA: William Kentridge was presented at the MCA Sep 22, 2012-Mar 17, 2013. Learn more about the exhibition.
