Back in October, Art21 released a new documentary film about South African artist of many media, William Kentridge, entitled William Kentridge: Anything is Possible. The Henry hosted a screening of the film followed by an animation workshop taught by local artist and animator Tess Martin, in which participants could further explore Kentridge’s processes by trying animation for themselves.
We were SO pleased to find out today that the film is among the recipients of the 70th annual George Foster Peabody awards!
The Peabody Awards honor distinction and achievement within the fields of broadcast journalism, documentary film making, educational and children’s programming, and entertainment. This is Art21’s second Peabody. Many consider this to be the most distinguished award in the field and there are not many small producers who have won more than 1 Peabody, so we want to send a big CONGRATULATIONS to Art21!
And… FYI, you can see Tess Martin’s animation Plain Face in the exhibition (Be)Longing: Apprehensions and Opportunity at the Cultural Crossroads until April 9th at the Kirkland Arts Center.
