Slade Lectures

Slade Professor of Fine Art, Annual Lecture Series

We are very sorry to announce that the pandemic has necessitated the deferment of the 2022 Slade Lectures (below) until another year. 


 "A Natural History of the Studio", William Kentridge

We are delighted to announce William Kentridge as the Slade Professor of Fine Art for 2021/22. 

William Kentridge (born Johannesburg, South Africa, 1955) is internationally acclaimed for his drawings, films, theatre and opera productions.  His method combines drawing, writing, film, performance, music, theatre, and collaborative practices to create works of art that are grounded in politics, science, literature and history, yet maintaining a space for contradiction and uncertainty. 

A full biography can be found here.
