William Kentridge

I'm keen to see the William Kentridge exhibit at the Henry Art Gallery. Kentridge is a native of South Africa who has achieved world wide fame for his drawings, animations, puppets, installations, performance arts and more. A wide selection from his decades-long body of work on display at the Henry until May 3rd. Included in the exhibit are dozens of black and white charcoal drawings, brilliant stereoscopic images, and mind-blowing animations created from hundreds of etchings and drawings.

This is one such animation which gives some idea of what Kentridge can do with charcoals, and what we can expect at the Henry. The show was reviewed by local critic Jen Graves in The Stranger a few weeks back. I'm prepared to be amazed.
