William Kentridge - FRAGILE IDENTITIES @ Various

It is not too late to catch the William Kentridge exhibition "FRAGILE IDENTITIES" that is taking place around Brighton and Hove.

One of the world’s most influential contemporary artists, Kentridge will exhibit a selection of his work including prints, installations and film, in Brighton this autumn. This will be the first time that most of these works will have been shown in the UK, and will constitute his largest exhibition here to date. Born and resident in Johannesburg, Kentridge produced work that engaged in the struggle against Apartheid. Today, his work continues to infuse political sensitivity into the making of his graphic representations and in his filmic and theatrical productions in a manner that discovers politics in the daily traumas and dramas of human experience.

Part of the exhibition takes place at the University of Brighton site on Grand Parade while another part is on show at The Regency Town House in Hove. This latter part is an animation that is projected down from the ceiling onto a table and viewed in the reflection in a mirrored tube on the table.

It runs until the 31st Dec 2007.
