Mbeki's South Africa

Author: Jeffrey Herbst

Despite remarkable progress since the end of apartheid, South Africa today is badly wracked by AIDS and severe wealth inequalities, with a leadership still fixated on racial struggle. After more than a decade in power, the ANC has yet to reconcile its various ambitions: curbing racism, promoting political participation, and advancing the interests of all South Africans.

William Kentridge: Five Themes

 

This large-scale exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) surveys nearly three decades of work by South African artist William Kentridge. Dealing with subjects as sobering as apartheid, colonialism, and totalitarianism, his work offers a glimpse into the daily lives of South Africans. This exhibition explores five primary themes in Kentridge's art from the 1980s to the present, and underscores the inter­relatedness of his mediums and disciplines. Please join us at MoMA for a discussion with William Kentridge, Richard N. Haass, and Glenn D. Lowry followed by a private viewing of William Kentridge: Five Themes.

This event is made possible by the generous support of Bank of America.
