William Kentridge in Conversation with Andrew Hoyem Oct 13, 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA

Renowned South African artist William Kentridge joins master printer and IFPDA member Andrew Hoyem to discuss the limited-edition letterpress volume of Lulu that the two are creating for Hoyem's Arion Press of San Francisco. The multi-talented artist and the master printer discuss how design and imagery aid human imagination, whether by enhancing words on a page or orchestral sound in a theater. They touch upon the role of time in reading and performance, as well as the difference in the two versions of the Lulu plays by Frank Wedekind—Pandora's Box (1904) and Earth Spirit (1895). These works were the basis both for the Alban Berg opera, as well as the 1929 silent film masterpiece Pandora's Box by G. W. Pabst.
Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
