Camberwell College of Arts in association with Print Quarterly are proud to present the second Print Quarterly Platform Event: Paul Coldwell in conversation with William Kentridge.

About

William Kentridge , born in South Africa, is one of the pre-eminent artists of his generation, working across media that include drawing, film, performance, prints and sculpture leaving a legacy of works which ‘declare his allegiance to the humanist project and to a version of realism and social  engagement’ (Roger Malbert).

Printmaking has been close to the centre of his practice as an artist throughout and this conversation between Kentridge and Professor Paul Coldwell will focus on his approach to the print and how it has informed his wider practice – drawings and theatre projects regularly emerge from his prints.  

Kentridge’s art regularly draws from themes relating to South African apartheid so it is unsurprising that political upheaval is a predominant focus of Kentridge’s work as he studied Politics and African Studies at university and his lawyer father represented Nelson Mandela and the family of Steve Biko.
