William Kentridge
A Poem that is Not Our Own
William Kentridge
LaM / Feb 5 – Dec 10, 2020
Lille, France

A major retrospective devoted to William Kentridge opens at the LaM / Lille Métropole Musée d’Art Moderne, the first exhibition on this scale commissioned by a French museum. Designed in close collaboration with the artist and the Kunstmuseum Basel, the exhibition will be take up half the Museum’s surface area and present previously unseen works never exhibited in Europe (from the artist’s very first drawings to his latest work, yet to be completed).

William Kentridge belongs to a long line of artists, from Leonardo da Vinci to Pablo Picasso, who have mastered all expressive forms, from drawing to theatrical production. He has added the mediums of today: video, animation and performance. It is above all on the stage, a place that lends itself to transitions and metamorphoses, that this synthesis of all the arts flourishes in the most inventive ways.

Because it creates a relationship between artistic forms, Kentridge’s work is often spectacular. Its effect on the spectator, whose every sense is engaged, is immediate.
