‘William Kentridge. What is not drawn' from 9 October to 21 February at the CCCB

‘William Kentridge. What is not drawn'.

The exhibition brings the complete series of short films Drawings for Projection to Europe for the first time.

William Kentridge, born in South Africa, is an internationally known contemporary artist. He works in different artistic fields, such as drawing, film and theatre, and his projects form a tentacular and diverse exhibition. From October 9th, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) will be hosting the exhibition ‘William Kentridge. What is not drawn', a unique opportunity to enjoy some of his most important works. For the first time in Europe, the complete series of short animated films, Drawings for Projection, will be displayed, providing a critique of South African history from apartheid to the present.

There will also be More Sweetly Play the Dance, a moving frieze of enormous size that mixes some of the artistic disciplines mastered by the author and evokes various images, such as the dynamics of a ritual procession. The exhibition also shows large-format drawings and tapestries, all with the aim of reflecting the power, exclusion and the consequences of post-colonialism.

The exhibition will be open until the 21st of February 2021. We recommend that you buy the tickets online, where you will have to choose a time slot for attendance, following the security protocols of the centre. Moreover, between the 9th and 12th of October the CCCB will be open and tickets will be free. You can buy them here.
