WJK @ WAM & Wits 100: William Kentridge artworks from WAM collections

21 June 2022 - 12 August 2022

In 2022 Wits University turns 100 and Wits Art Museum turns 10. As part of the celebrations, WAM presents an exhibition by William Kentridge, the internationally renowned artist and Wits alumnus who has played such a vital role in championing WAM’s creation and development.
 
The university’s holdings span more than four decades, from 1980 to 2022, and comprise over 20 drawings, etchings and screenprints. A few artworks with special connections to the university have also been loaned, including an edited projection of ‘Oh To Believe in Another World’, Kentridge’s latest film which is based on Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony and commissioned by the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra in Switzerland.
 
Some of the original three-dimensional set models created to produce the film will be on view at WAM, giving the exhibition a richness and diversity for which this world famous multi-disciplinary artist is known.
