William Kentridge: Five Themes

Introductory Speaker:
Glenn Lowry Director, Museum of Modern Art
William Kentridge Artist
Richard N. Haass President, Council on Foreign Relations


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.
