Description:

Originally organized at the San Francisco MoMA, and mentioned in the May 1, 2009 Scout Report, this exhibition of work by South African artist William Kentridge has now moved on to New York City's MoMA. Like the San Francisco version, the New York show is arranged into 5 themes, and includes video documenting the artist's process, but the web interface of the New York show is different enough to be worth another look. The 5 themes: Ubu and the Procession, 1989 - 2002; Soho and Felix, 1989 - 2003; Artist in the Studio, 1998 - 2006; The Magic Flute, 2003 - 2007; and The Nose, 2007 - 2010, are presented as a kind of spider-webbed, overlapping, organic diagram. Rather than moving linearly, visitors can jump from area to area. What initially seems like an interesting sidelight - Kentridge did the stage design and directed a 2005 production of Mozart's "the Magic Flute" - is therefore shown in closer relationship to the rest of the artist's work.
