Three rooms into the modern art section of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya the film Tide Table is projected on the wall. It’s a typical William Kentridge piece: animated black and white drawings, frolicking bathers are observed by Ghadhafi-like generals, a cow is slaughtered in a cabana, lots of political innuendo. Even though the film is combined with a couple of drawings by the South African artist, it’s pretty much a stand-alone presentation. It lacks the kind of conte... [more]

Essay by Dan Cameron The parallel worlds of printmaking on the one hand, and painting and sculpture on the other, have had a long history of close but unequal interaction. Countless wielders of the paintbrush and chisel have, over the centuries, turned to printmaking primarily as a way of expanding the circulation of their work, so that the arduous and time-consuming creation of unique images can be offset by means of an inherently reproducible medium. But the art world has not always ex... [more]

“There lived a redheaded man who had no eyes or ears. He didn’t have hair either, so he was called a redhead arbitrarily. He couldn’t talk because he had no mouth. He had no nose either. He didn’t even have arms or legs. He had no stomach, he had no back, he had no spine, and he had no innards at all. He didn’t have anything. So we don’t even know who we’re talking about. It’s better that we don’t talk about him any more.” - Daniil Kh... [more]

Given the historical connection between South Africa and the Netherlands, it will come as a surprise that William Kentridge, one of South Africa’s most prominent contemporary artists (along with Amsterdam’s adopted Marlene Dumas) might still need an introduction in the Netherlands. The internationally admired artist is currently having his first ever exhibition in the Netherlands, hosted by the Jewish Historical Museum in partnership with the Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundati... [more]

An Inquisitive Eye provides visitors an occasion to view significant prints and printed books from the museum’s permanent collection which numbers over ten thousand, and spans the history of printmaking from 1493 to the present. Prints possess a multi-valent nature—both the subject and technique embodied in an image must be considered on equal footing, one not privileged over the other. The idea expressed on paper depends upon the printer’s abilities and particular materials to realize successfully... [more]

The 2010 SITE biennial opened with the press conference, curators spoke about the exhibition, using words like "quintessential," and "magical."  My expectations for the 2010 biennial grew.  Raising questions about our physical bodies in relation to the advent of technology, the curators call on historical and theatrical references while focusing on the handcraft of video.  Of course, handmade and video seem to be a contradiction in terms, especially from the viewpoint of the famed philosopher Wa...

William Kentridge at Jeu de Paume June 29th, 2010 - September 5th, 2010
Posted 7/19/10

When I first saw William Kentridge’s work at the Documenta X in Kassel in 1997, I was mesmerized. I was fascinated by the seemingly endless layers, both literal and conceptual, of images that were always in the process of transformation, being drawn, changed, erased, added to. The process of inscription and erasure, and the animation of the inanimate through stop motion technique reminded me of the early animation of filmmakers such as Emil Kohl, who, like Kentridge was engaged in th...

Taking its title from a Lawrence Weiner work, As Long As It Lasts comprises works that contemplate impermanence and mortality, often from a personalized, humanist point of view. There is nothing fussy or overly sophisticated about this one. It talks the talk and walks the walk.  The show opens with Maurizio Cattelan's simple photograph of a pen that has just run out of ink, then proceeds to two poetic films  by William Kentridge and Guido Van der Werve, respectively. The latt... [more]

Puppets, puppetry and the like are often relegated to being an obscure subgenre of the theater or sometimes of the art world but the exhibition, The Puppet Show, currently on view at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, points out the fact that puppets frequently infiltrate popular culture and bring along with them issues that loom large like agency, control, miniaturization and manipulation. These issues are explored by a wide range of internationally recognized artists who have created work that i... [more]
