William Kentridge at Arthur Ross Gallery


I was walking into Fisher Fine Arts Library to do some homework for my computer science class, and I saw that there was a new artist whose work was on display in the Arthur Ross Gallery. I’m not sure how many people actually walk into that room every day; it seems to me that the man at security might get a little bit lonely sometimes due to lack of traffic. But I was able to see a series of cat prints hanging on the wall, which immediately brightened my day, as I am a massive cat enthusiast. The gallery has many other abstract interpretations of everyday objects. I highly recommend going if you’re looking for some new ideas on how to interpret things – it only takes about 5 minutes of your day to walk around and get inspired. I really liked this quote that was in Kentridge’s bio:

“I am interested in a political art, that is to say an art of ambiguity, contradiction, uncomplicated gestures, and uncertain endings.” – William Kentridge
