William Kentridge




In autumn 2022, the Royal Academy of Arts will host a major exhibition of the work of the internationally celebrated South African artist and Honorary Royal Academician, William Kentridge (b. 1955).

Working closely with the artist and his studio, this ambitious and immersive exhibition has been specifically curated for the Royal Academy and will encompass the broad repertoire of Kentridge’s forty-year career. It will bring together important works spanning from the 1980s through to the present day, including charcoal drawings, animated films, a mechanical theatre, sculptures, tapestries and performance pieces. William Kentridge will be the most significant exhibition of the artist’s work in the UK to date and promises to reveal an artist at the height of his creative powers.

William Kentridge is known for his distinctive drawings, animated films, performances, and large-scale productions.
