It is the first show that occupies all three spaces at the main gallery as well as the new Librairie Marian Goodman – which contains large woodcuts from his Triumphs and Laments series – The exhibition can be seen until 15rd April 2017 at Marian goodman gallery.

“I’M INTERESTED IN IDEAS THAT FALL APART.
IN WHAT’S IN THE GAP LEFT WHEN WE LOSE OUR SENSE OF UTOPIAN THINKING.
AND IN WHAT’S TO FOLLOW.”WILLIAM KENTRIDGE, FEBRUARY 2017
