So there is an Exhibition & Networking event at 798’s UCCA art space from 15th -16th Aug (this weekend). The German Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) are delighted to invite you to an exhibition and networking event at 798’s UCCA art space.
At this event, we are going to present you:
“William Kentridge: Notes Towards a Model Opera,” a comprehensive retrospective that marks the artist’s largest exhibition in Asia to date. Displayed across a two-story edifice designed by Kentridge’s frequent collaborator Sabine Theunissen in the UCCA Great Hall, the show includes works from nearly every major project the artist has undertaken from 1988 to the present. The exhibition spans a vast array of media: two-dimensional artworks in India ink, charcoal, linocut, and silkscreen print on paper; kinetic sculptures that evoke the Duchampian ready-made tradition; several multi-channel video artworks comprising dozens of projections; and a large-scale installation in the form of an operatic model complete with mechanical puppet actors.
The exhibition “William Kentridge: Notes Towards a Model Opera” is accompanied by an English catalogue of the same title. The book contains essays by Andrew Solomon, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Columbia University; sinologist and renowned historian of Chinese visual culture Alfreda Murck; and UCCA Director Philip Tinari. At the core of the catalogue is a text by Kentridge himself entitled “Peripheral Thinking,” a reproduction of the artist’s notebook for a lecture on this project and his engagement with China. The text follows in the tradition of the theatrical lectures best exemplified by his 2012 Norton Lectures at Harvard, whose associated publication Six Drawing Lessons will also debut in Chinese in conjunction with the UCCA exhibition.
