South African artist William Kentridge (b.1955, Johannesburg) is renowned for his animated expressionist drawings and films exploring time, the history of colonialism and the aspirations and failures of revolutionary politics.

About

In this major exhibition of six large-scale installations by the artist, music and drama are ruptured by revolution, exile and scientific advancement.

The exhibition includes The Refusal of Time (2012), an immersive collaborative work featuring a shadow procession and a cacophony of clocks, bassoons and metronomes. The installation was created with composer Philip Miller, projection designer Catherine Meyburgh, choreographer Dada Masilo and scientist Peter Galison, alongside performers, machine-makers, costume designers and set designers from around the world.
