Finding the Sibyl: a tour of the studio

Those interested should keep an eye on the website on the morning of the event. New tickets may become available at that time.  


On Wednesday 17 November, the South African artist William Kentridge will be awarded an honorary doctorate by the Free University of Brussels, in partnership with Ghent University and the University of the Western Cape (South Africa). The ceremony will take place in the Royal Monnaie Theatre. The evening before, on 16 November, William Kentridge will give a lecture in Bozar, entitled Finding the Sibyl: a tour of the studio. The lecture gives a unique insight into the artist's work and describes the ways in which studio processes can be instructive for looking at universal questions.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions afterwards. 
Since his international debut at Documenta X in 1997, the South African artist William Kentridge (° 1955) has gained worldwide fame. He is mainly known for his eleven animated films entitled Drawings for Projection. Kentridge's amazingly diversified works include masterly drawings, prints, tapestries, sculptures, lectures and opera productions.
William Kentridge gives this lecture at the invitation of Kunstenplatform Brussel, RITCS School of Arts, Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and Bozar.
