William Kentridge generously presented a lecture on Triumphs and Laments mural in Rome in support of a fundraiser to send two young Artist Proof Studio artists to Italy. The event held at Wits Art Museum (WAM), was coordinated and catered for by Mastrantonio and supported by the Italian Consulate.
On exhibition in the core gallery were the Trial and Laments series consisting of Garibaldi, Marcus Aurelius, Triumph of Bacchus, Skeletal Horse and Refugees. This was the first time all the prints printed by APS from the series were shown together in South Africa having recently returned from Emerson Urban Arts in Boston.
A special edition of smaller prints were made available specifically for the event and sold at a special discounted price for that evening only to raise funds towards a trip to Italy for two deserving APS artists.
Thank you to Mark Hudson from Soundsation for audio and visuals, as well as Paul Mills who filmed the lecture.
