Vernissages | NYC, William Kentridge at MoMA



A survey of three decades of William Kentridge's work and opened yesterday at MoMA. The spectacular exhibition presented large scale multichannel film and video installations.
The South African artist works in a multitude of media including film, collage performance, books, prints and sculpture. His most recognizable work is animated films from charcoal drawings, which present socio-political themes ---totalitarianism, apartheid and colonialism--- in poetic and lyrical interpretations .
The exhibition included Journey to the Moon and maquettes of the Kentridge's production of the Mozart's opera Magic Flute.

Size Does Matter opened tonight at the Flag Foundation. Extremely crowded, probably the main attracting factor was the "unusual" curator, basketball star Shaquille O'Neall.

Vernissages NYC | Chelsea February 4 | Jan Dibbets "New Horizons", Jan Gilbert "Sur La Ligne", "Not Singing Allowed", Sterling Ruby "2 Traps"


The most interesting openings of the evenings were about photography ---and its different contextual media and branching, from conceptual to installation based work: land and water images of Jan Dibbets, lost places in the memory journey and of Jan Gilbert and a powerful photographic documentation of Flamenco, beyond dance.
