WILLIAM KENTRIDGE
FRAGILE IDENTITIES

7 NOVEMBER - 31 DECEMBER 2007

UNIVERSITY OF BRIGHTON GALLERY
AND REGENCY TOWN HOUSE

One of the world’s most influential contemporary artists, Kentridge will exhibit a selection of his work including prints, installations and film, in Brighton this autumn. This will be the first time that most of these works will have been shown in the UK, and will constitute his largest exhibition here to date. Born and resident in Johannesburg, Kentridge produced work that engaged in the struggle against Apartheid. Today, his work continues to infuse political sensitivity into the making of his graphic representations and in his filmic and theatrical productions in a manner that discovers politics in the daily traumas and dramas of human experience.

MEMORY, NARRATIVE, HISTORY
THE POLITICS OF REPRESENTATION

17 - 18 NOVEMBER 2007

UNIVERSITY OF BRIGHTON GALLERY
HELD AT REGENCY TOWN HOUSE

The challenge confronting artistic representation after the detour of post-modernism is both profound and invigorating. What is the world
of art in a world of war, terror and ubiquitous narcissism? If part of the modernist project
was the foregrounding of self-reference and
self-criticism in art, how can this be usefully preserved while re-engaging with the political? These questions will be debated at the symposium by practitioners, historians, critics
and curators.
