Four Goodman Gallery artists – Kendell Geers, William Kentridge, Tabita Rezaire and Tracey Rose – will take part in the New York City Biennial Performa 17 (1 – 19 November).
As a newly commissioned work which draws its inspiration from Kurt Schwitters’ seminal sonic poem titled , Kentridge’s performance at Performa 17 is strongly linked to his ongoing practice in which he responds to the legacies of colonialism and apartheid within the context of South Africa’s current socio-political landscape.
The Hilliard University Art Museum in Louisiana presents a solo exhibition for William Kentridge, titled William Kentridge: Journey to the Moon (8 September – 20 January).
Centred on Kentridge’s filmic artwork of the same title, the exhibition offers an intimate look into Kentridge’s production process, both physically and psychically.
The work, titled Procession of Reparationists, is inspired by the ex-industrial vocation and workers of the Great Reparations Officine.
The black metal sculpture consists of a procession of figures with a strong significance and symbolic value, as it alludes to the work of repairing trains and bodies.
This co-production with the Metropolitan Opera, New York, and the Canadian Opera Company, Toronto is conducted by Vladimir Jurowski, with sets by Sabine Theunissen, costumes by Greta Goiris, video composition and editing by Catherine Meyburgh.
Enough and More Than Enough (1 November – 19 March).Curated by Manuel Borja-Villel and Soledad Liaño, the exhibition focuses on Kentridge’s stage work – including theatre, opera and performance – and uses it as a lens through which to approach his sculptural projects.In its broad selection of materials and media, the show pays heed to the synergies between the artist’s visual art and stage work, in addition to the particular focal points and formalisations set out in each project.Written by Berg after Georg Büchner’s fragmentary play (1836), it took him five years to complete the score, and another three to get the work staged in Berlin in 1925.The tale of the tormented, homicidal, soldier Wozzeck is set by Kentridge at the time of ‘The Great War’ in Europe and is characterised by bleak landscapes, denuded of their trees and scarred by shell craters.
In a panel discussion, titled A Talk About Time and moderated by Andrea Ghez, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, and Founder/Director of Galactic Center, Kentridge and his collaborator Peter Galison will discuss the cultural and scientific implications of time.
