William Kentridge gets the full treatment with a touring survey show (organized by Dan Cameron, Staci Boris, and Neal Benezra), featuring eleven animated films created since the late '80s. Bristling with reference to the social circumstance of his South African homeland, Kentridge sketches up his satirical narratives by compulsively redrafting his drawings, more than sixty of which will accompany the exhibition. At the Hirshhorn, each film will be given its own viewing space--a must for cutting an interpretive swath through the prickly thicket of Kentridge's content-laden parables. Feb. 28--May 13; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, June 3-Sept. 16; MCA Chicago, Oct. 13, 2001-Jan. 6, 2002; Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, Mar.-May, 2002; LACMA, July 21-Oct. 6, 2002.
