In conjunction with the Townsend Center’s 2008-2009 Avenali Lecture by South African artist William Kentridge, Depth of Field will feature two short documentaries on the artist and his work. Though he considers charcoal drawing to be his primary medium, Kentridge has extended the range of these drawings into a series of short animated films that blur the distinctions between animation, drawing, and documentation. Included in the screening will be Alex Gabassi’s 2007 biography of the artist, Certain Doubts of William Kentridge (which was filmed on the eve of Kentridge’s major installation, Screensaver) and Kentridge’s interview with Dan Cameron, which focuses specifically on Kentridge’s animated short Automatic Writing

Presented as part of the Depth of Field 2008-2009 Series: Moving Images, Moving Art
