William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance

Presented by Cincinnati Art Museum

Venue: Cincinnati Art Museum

City: Cincinnati

Contemporary South African artist William Kentridge's More Sweetly Play the Dance will make its North American museum premiere at the Cincinnati Art Museum from April 26-January 29. The work is a loan from the LUMA Foundation and is presented with lead sponsorship from the Marnick Foundation and additional support from Cincinnati-based FotoFocus and the Millard F. Rogers, Jr. Fund. This powerful film installation encircles the viewer with seven screens, on which a procession of travelers passes across a charcoal-drawn animated landscape. The immersive panorama hints at multiple histories, evoking a danse macabre, a jazz funeral, an exodus and a journey. Accompanied by a brass band, the film references medieval manuscripts and the storylines of refuge throughout history.
