William Kentridge: Universal Archive

August 18 through October 11, 2020

In this expanding series, renowned South African artist, William Kentridge revisits familiar iconography. Kentridge collaborated with master printer Jillian Ross and her team at David Krut Workshop in Johannesburg to meticulously translate ink sketches into linocut prints. The images are printed on 1950s dictionary and encyclopedia pages. They shift from identifiable subject matter to deconstructed images of abstract marks to suggest skepticism about the creative process and knowledge construction.

William Kentridge: Universal Archive is organized for tour by the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College and is made possible, in part, by contributions from Alva Greenberg '74, the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and Ohio Arts Council. Funding for the exhibition at the Marion Art Gallery is provided by the Cathy and Jesse Marion Endowment Fund of the Fredonia College Foundation, as well as Friends of Rockefeller Arts Center.
