William Kentridge’s “Five Themes”

Making only four stops in the U.S. before embarking on a world-wide tour, “Five Themes” is structured around five important ideas or topics that have engaged the artist throughout his career such as apartheid and imperialism. Animated films, charcoal drawings, prints, theater models, sculptures, and books comprise the exhibit which infuses the serious aforementioned themes with dreamy, enigmatic elements and an amusing touch of self-awareness, resulting in an oeuvre that is magnetic, thought-provoking, and powerful. The exhibit opens Saturday, and runs through January 17 at the Norton Museum of Art (1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach).
