The name might not be among the most well-known here in Brazil, but the work of South African artist William Kentridge has featured in biennales and galleries the world over, from the Louvre in Paris to the MoMA in New York.

Being his first major exhibition in Latin America, 'Fortuna' at Gávea's IMS was conceived and curated by Lilian Tone with Brazil in mind and brings various pieces produced between 1989 and 2012 and also a series of hitherto unseen works. Revealing the creative process of Kentridge in his studio in South Africa, the works show the variety and multi-faceted nature and talents of the artist, how his work transcends genres and embraces different platforms, from bringing early drawings and prints to life through film, to theatre and opera.

Kentridge reached international status with the series of short films ‘Drawings for Projection’, started in 1989 and all ten of which are shown for the first time together, accompanied by the 23 sketches which they started life as, creating a unique opportunity to examine the dialogue between the sketches and the film, and the creative process of his art.
