William Kentridge’s meditation on the nature of time, the acclaimed exhibition The Refusal of Time, travels to Cape Town in February for an extended run at Iziko South African National Gallery.
In association with the Goodman Gallery, this multifaceted installation runs from 20 February to 21 June 2015.
The Refusal of Time combines film, sound and mechanical sculpture in an immersive 30-minute experience that explores the notion of time. It was recently jointly acquired by the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The installation also has a theatrical accompaniment. The chamber opera Refuse the Hour will be presented by Design Indaba at the Cape Town City Hall for three nights only. The chamber opera features the artist as actor along with twelve other performers. The production is an extension of his collaboration with Philip Miller, Dada Masilo, Peter Galison and Catherine Meyburgh.
