In a joint acquisition with the San Francisco Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art premiered William Kentridge’s The Refusal of Time (2012) on October 22; the exhibit will run through May 11, 2014. A five-channel installation is billed as “a thirty-minute meditation on time and space, the complex legacies of colonialism and industry, and the artist’s own intellectual life.” Kentridge was born in 1955 in Johannesburg, South Africa where he still lives and works.
The Met will host three Gallery Talk events in conjunction with this exhibit. The dates are as follows:
Saturday, January 4, 2014, 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Sunday, January 5, 2014, 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Saturday, February 22, 2014, 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
