Discover the South African artist’s fascinating works with William Kentridge: Thick Time at the Whitechapel Gallery, his first major solo exhibition in the UK.

Known for his drawings, theatre productions and films, Kentridge also specialises in complex installations. The exhibition features six large-scale works created between 2003 and 2016, which gives an insight into the artist’s vision throughout his career.

Highlights of the show include some of Kentridge’s spectacular installations, most of which have never been exhibited in the UK before. Don’t miss The Refusal of Time, a multi-sensory installation combining performance, sound and moving images.
