ENOUGH + MORE THAN ENOUGH
The William Townsend Memorial Lecture 2016
This very distinguished lecture series has been hosted as a public lecture by the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL since 1974. Although speakers have included eminent art critics, art historians, theorists and curators including Norbert Lynton, Richard Wollheim, Andrew Causey, Richard Cork and Norman Bryson, the primary aim of the William Townsend Memorial Lecture series is to encourage well known and influential artists to talk about their work to art students and the wider public.
This year the Slade is delighted to welcome South African artist William Kentridge as our guest speaker.
William Kentridge is renowned for his animated expressionist drawings and films exploring time, the history of colonialism and the aspirations and failures of revolutionary politics. He currently has a major exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, and has designed the staging for the ENO's production of Berg's opera Lulu this autumn.
