EXCLUSIVE BREAKFAST TOUR OF WILLIAM KENTRIDGE: OH TO BELIEVE IN ANOTHER WORLD AT GOODMAN GALLERY FOLLOWED BY A VISIT TO THE ARTIST SOLO SHOW AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY
Oh To Believe in Another World is William Kentridge’s first solo exhibition with Goodman Gallery in London and marks thirty years of representation by the gallery. The exhibition premieres the artist’s latest major work, an immersive five-channel projection made in response to Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No.10. The installation lends the exhibition its evocative title – referencing utopia, our wish for it and the shadow it always casts.
For his solo show at the Royal Academy of Arts, William Kentridge creates a new and immersive world. Transforming the Main Galleries, this will be the largest exhibition of the artist’s work in the UK. Many pieces have never been seen before, and some have been made specifically for the show. Spanning a 40-year career, you will find rooms of 4-meter wide tapestries, Kentridge’s signature charcoal trees and flowers, and the breath-taking three-screen film, Notes Towards a Model Opera.
