William Kentridge: Universal Archive

20 September 2019

South African artist William Kentridge has created an extensive body of interrelated works that includes drawings, prints, sculptures, artists’ books, films, and theatrical productions. His interdisciplinary approach to art is most often political.

William Kentridge: Universal Archive presents a series of linocut images printed on dictionary and encyclopedia pages. The images — trees, coffee pots, cats, typewriters, birds, horses, nudes, and self-portraits — are frequent characters in his  visual lexicon, and range from highly descriptive to gestural abstractions.

Exhibition organized by the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College and curated by Natalie Marsh.

Opening Lecture and Reception: Friday, September 20
