Muse Scholar Program partners with Hunter College Art Galleries
The Muse Scholar Program partnered with The Hunter College Art Galleries to organize the exhibition of ART21—William Kentridge: Six Drawing Lessons. From February 28–March 22, 2014, the six lectures are being screened continuously in the 68th Street gallery.
The Six Drawing Lessons lectures were filmed in 2012 at Harvard University, where Kentridge presented at the school’s Mahindra Humanities Center. ART21, the award-winning nonprofit producers of Art in the Twenty-First Century, has distributed Six Drawing Lessons, each of which spans a wide range of ideas and includes vivid examples of Kentridge’s works.
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1955, Kentridge is a multidisciplinary artist who has had major exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and many other museums and cultural institutions around the world.
