Rhana Devenport ONZM, Director, Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA)

Event overview

Described as one of the most powerful voices in art today, William Kentridge emerged as an artist during the apartheid regime in South Africa.

That which we do not remember, an exhibition curated by the artist himself, traces the arc of Kentridge’s 30 year career and draws connections between the myriad aspects of his work including drawing, collage, stop-motion animation, performance, theatre, tapestry and sculpture.
