Solo Exhibition

William Kentridge - Universal Archive University of Wyoming Art Museum

William Kentridge shares new work inspired by the writing of his Norton Lectures delivered at Harvard in 2012. In this expanding series, a familiar, personal iconography is revisited: coffee pots, typewriters, cats, trees, nudes and other imagery—an intimate, thematic repertoire appearing in art and stage productions throughout Kentridge's career. Based on ink sketches, over 75 linocut prints shift from identifiable subject matter to deconstructed images of abstract marks on dictionary and encyclopedia pages, forming juxtapositions that suggest skepticism about the creative process and the construction of knowledge. This is the first major exhibition of the Universal Archive series and is organized with the cooperation of David Krut, in whose Johannesburg print studio Kentridge produced the series.
