Join us for a free curator floor talk with Art Gallery of NSW curator Nicholas Chambers on Saturday 17 June, 11am
One of the most powerful voices in art today, William Kentridge emerged as an artist during the apartheid regime in South Africa. Grounded in the violent absurdity of that period in his country’s history, his artworks draw connections between art, ideology, history and memory. Kentridge’s practice reveals the ways in which ideas and images echo across time and between different cultures. Kentridge’s eight-channel video work I am not me, the horse is not mine is among the artist’s most ambitious moving image works and arguably the most significant work by the artist in an Australian state institution collection. It premiered at the Biennale of Sydney in 2008 and was gifted to the Art Gallery of New South Wales by Anita and Luca Belgiorno-Nettis in 2017.
