Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Independence Ave. at 7th St., SW
This exhibition features 13 animated short films and some 60 related figure drawings created since the late 1980s by South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955). Kentridge's disturbing narratives of personal pathos, social inequity, and civil strife are created from drawings in process. Seven separate projection rooms and several galleries are devoted to the film work and draftsmanship of this artist.
