Eye Filmmuseum is exhibiting William Kentridge –Ten Drawings for Projection (1989-2011). These pieces, which Kentridge donated to Eye in 2015, marked his breakthrough into the international art scene in the 1990s. They are short films consisting of charcoal drawings in which Kentridge adds, removes and redraws pieces – often without concealing the process. Most of the films, like much of his musical theatre work, are accompanied by music by composer Philip Miller. They give insight into Kentridge’s oeuvre, and a glimpse of life in South Africa after the abolition of apartheid. The exhibition also includes Kentridge’s recent O Sentimental Machine installation, which consists of five screens. The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of films, talks and events.
