Kentridge has participated in a number of international biennales and in Documenta X (1997) XI (2002) and XIII (2012) as well as the Venice Biennale (2005, 1999 and 1993). He has been the recipient of numerous prizes including the Kyoto Prize (2010), the Oskar Kokoschka Award, Vienna (2008), the Kaiserring Prize (2003), the Carnegie Prize, the Carnegie International (2000), Standard Bank Young Artist Award (1987), and the Red Ribbon Award for Short Fiction (1982). He has received honorary doctorates from institutions including the Royal College of Art, London (2010), Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa (2008), and the University of the Witwatersrand (2004). A retrospective of his work recently ended in 2012 after a three year international tour that began at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California (2009). William Kentridge's work has been exhibited widely throughout the world including at the Tate Modern, London (2012), the Louvre, Paris (2010), the Centres Pompidou, Paris (2002), the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.

Melina Guillen: "I am a writer and curator based in Los Angeles and San Diego. I specialize in post-war American contemporary art history and feminist theory. My dissertation, tentatively titled "Don't Need You: A Radical Feminist Revision of Conceptual Art Practices in the United States, 1966-1980" argues that the canon of art history (as just one known example of a patriarchal institution) has yet to contend with the social and critical contributions of feminist theory and praxis, primarily radical, intersectional, and postcolonial theories of representation. I explore the concepts of withdrawal, refusal, and separatism in the works of Adrian Piper, Ana Mendieta, Lucy R. Lippard, and Lee Lozano. I have also published essays and presented on panels in other areas including socially engaged art criticism, art and technology, public art, urban studies and spatial politics, social movements, DIY culture, and humor as a critical device."
