William Kentridge – Scholarly Research


We love to highlight the ways exposure to art and visual culture can encourage inventive conversations and projects within the liberal arts as well as the greater global academic community. The work of William Kentridge, the focus of our exhibition Universal Archivehas been the subject of lots of exciting research. Check out these articles to see how Kentridge’s work has been interpreted by academics and scholars, and maybe even see how the Universal Archive may intersect with your own research and teaching.
