William Kentridge: that which we do not remember

One of the most powerful voices in art today

William Kentridge emerged as an artist during the apartheid regime in South Africa. Grounded in the violent absurdity of that period in his country’s history, his artworks draw connections between art, ideology, history and memory.

Curated by the artist, this exhibition encourages viewers to trace visual and thematic links between diverse aspects of his practice, from his engagement with opera to his interest in early cinema, from his inimitable animated drawings to sculpture and works on paper.

The exhibition features loans from the collection of Naomi Milgrom AO and the artist’s studio, in addition to works held by the Art Gallery of NSW. It includes one of Kentridge’s most ambitious and celebrated video installations – I am not me, the horse is not mine 2008 – a major new addition to the Gallery’s collection, donated by Anita Belgiorno-Nettis AM and Luca Belgiorna-Nettis AM.

Proudly supported by Naomi Milgrom AO, principal exhibition patron and lender.

This display includes works that are protected under the Protection of Cultural Objects on Loan Act 2013.
