William Kentridge: Triumphs and Laments: a project for Rome

MACRO

17 Apr 201602 Oct 2016

Curated by Federica Pirani and Claudio Crescentini, the exhibition showcases more than 80 artworks with a special setting ideated by William Kentridge for MACRO.

The artist’s most ambitious project to date, Triumphs and Laments is a 500 meter-long frieze, erased from the biological patina on the travertine embankment walls that line Rome’s urban waterfront. Exploring dominant tensions in the history of the Eternal City from past to present, more than eighty figures, up to 10 meters high, represent Rome’s greatest victories and defeats from mythological time to present, forming a silhouetted procession on Piazza Tevere.
