William Kentridge: Thick Time




Thick Time curated by Iwona Blazwick, Whitechapel Gallery Director, is the artist’s first major public solo presentation in the UK in over 15 years.

The exhibition features six works created between 2003 and 2016 – including two of the artist’s immersive audio-visual installations, The Refusal of Time (2012) and O Sentimental Machine (2003), which have never previously been exhibited in the UK. The exhibition also features his flip-book film, Second-hand Reading (2013), a series of mural-scale tapestries based on his opera production of Shostakovich’s The Nose and a set model which reveals his working process on the opera production Lulu (2016), which he will direct at English National Opera this November.
