A Universal Archive: William Kentridge as Printmaker, a Hayward Touring exhibition at Peninsula Arts, will be the first UK exhibition to focus solely on the internationally renowned South African artist's prints. This major exhibition will include a multitude of prints in all media dating from 1988 to the present, ranging in scale from intimate etchings and drypoints to large linocuts. New works from Kentridge's on-going series Universal Archive, including Cat Assemblage (2012) and 12 Coffee Pots (2012), will be on display in Britain for the first time. With a stress on experimental and serial works, this exhibition will highlight Kentridge's distinctive use of light and shadow and silhouettes, his concern with memory and perspective, and his absorption in literary texts. A Hayward Touring exhibition from Southbank Centre, London.
