William Kentridge Lectures in Cambridge

William Kentridge is a South African artist who animates his charcoal drawings. He constructs his animations by filming a giant drawing, photographing the drawing after each erasure and change. A single drawing creates an entire animation. These palimpsest-like drawings are later displayed along with the films as finished pieces of art.

He is coming to Cambridge for nearly two months to do a series of weekly lectures. The lectures are free, but you need to come get tickets for each lecture a few hours earlier each week at the Harvard box office (in the Holoyoke Center, near the Harvard T-station).
