Just In: Trailer, Teasers, and Slideshows

Published on August 31st, 2010 by

Fall preview season is upon us, so it’s time for us to throw our cards into the mix. The first trailer for William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible is now available for your viewing pleasure in the Media section (and after the break below), as well as at any of your (and our) favorite video-sharing or video-watching platforms.

On the subject of media, new image slideshows are coming later this week, each featuring thematic narratives by way of pairing artworks, photos, and exclusive production stills with selected quotes from the artist. In the meantime, catch up with the first two slideshows: In the Studio is a glimpse of the artist at work in his Johannesburg studio; and On Perception shows the range of optical trickery and techniques adapted by the artist through various projects.

Finally, we released two more teaser videos since the launch of this site; all four teasers can be viewed in the Media section. Catch the trailer past the break, and be sure to browse through the Media section for additional videos and images.
