Aspire Art Auctions is excited to present an exquisite selection of William Kentridge prints on the upcoming Modern & Contemporary Art Auction in Cape Town on the 29th and 30th September 2021.
Kentridge’s printmaking is integral to his artistic practice. He began his career learning etching at the Johannesburg Foundation and has, over four decades, experimented with a broad range of techniques, from etching to lithography, aquatint, drypoint, photogravure and woodcut.
As a part of the preview lead-up to the sale, Aspire will present a panel discussion spotlighting a selection of prints that feature on the auction. In this talk we will delve into Kentridge’s creative process. Admirers and collectors are invited to join Aspire and our panelists as we consider history and meaning but also the fascinating technical and creative aspects of the the printmaking process.
Panelists: Master Printer Jillian Ross and curator Tammy Langtry in conversation with Aspire Art Auctions Senior Art Specialist, Sarah Sinisi.
