South Africa’s William Kentridge @ The Henry Art Gallery!

I went to the Henry Art Gallery today with no expectations and was blown away by the William Kentridge exhibit. A South African native that has achieved world-class fame for his drawings, installations, performance arts, animations, and more, Kentridge currently has a body of work on display at the Henry until May 3rd. Included in the exhibit are dozens of black and white charcoal drawings, brilliant stereoscopic images, and mind-blowing animations based off of his charcoal drawings.

While the above bootlegged example (we do not condone bootlegging videos, however) is not one of the animations on display at the Henry, it essentially captures the spirit and gives you an idea of what you can expect. Go to the Henry and be prepared to be amazed by just what one man can do with charcoals.
