Art In America

William Kentridge

at David Krut Projects,
526 W. 26th St. #816

Twenty years' worth of etchings and linocuts published by David Krut, a gallery and print workshop in New York and Johannesburg, give context to William Kentridge's hand-drawn animated films and recent opera productions, including The Nose (2007-09) and The Magic Flute Portfolio (2007).  "The Universal Archive," a new, ongoing series printed on dictionary and encyclopedia pages, features individual images—stove-top coffee makers, typewriters, birds perched on branches, nudes—by now familiar to followers of Kentridge's work. (The artist also has a show at New York's Marian Goodman Gallery, through Oct 26.)
