When I was in London, I stopped in the Royal Academy of Arts to see their William Kindred show, whose Banner was claiming the space out front quite nicely. It's big in many senses with a wide span of works from the South African artist's 40-plus year career. you start with a room of his early charcoal and pastel drawings from the 80s, bearing witness to life in Johannesburg under apartheid from different perspectives. Drawing forms the basis of pretty much everything Kentridge does, he animates drawings into films, and constructs installations and sculptures that set the stage. His works are full of references historical, art historical, Musical, and personal, making a feast for the eyes and the Brain. If you find his work do yourself a favor and spend some time with it let it wash over, you follow the rabbit holes of research it sends you down and bask in his epic craftsmanship
