Exhibition - William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance

Arts and Entertainment

February 8, 2018

From: Cincinnati Art Museum

Contemporary South African artist William Kentridge’s More Sweetly Play the Dance will make its North American museum premiere at the Cincinnati Art Museum from April 26, 2017–May 20, 2018. The work is a loan from the LUMA Foundation and is presented with lead sponsorship from the Marnick Foundation and additional support from Cincinnati-based FotoFocus and the Millard F. Rogers, Jr. Fund.

This powerful film installation encircles the viewer with seven screens, on which a procession of travelers passes across a charcoal-drawn animated landscape. The immersive panorama hints at multiple histories, evoking a danse macabre, a jazz funeral, an exodus and a journey. Accompanied by a brass band, the film references medieval manuscripts and the storylines of refuge throughout history.

Date: April 26, 2017 – May 20, 2018


Tuesday - Sunday: 11am - 5pm
