Robert Hodgins, Deborah Bell and William Kentridge at Boston University Art Gallery

Presented concurrently with 'South Africa: Artists, Prints, Community - 25 Years at the Caversham Press' at Boston University’s 808 Gallery, this companion exhibition features the work of three South African artists who were important participants in the early years of The Caversham Press. Bell, Hodgins, and Kentridge forged long-term relationships with both Caversham and with each other, leading to the creation of three collaborative print portfolios - Hogarth in Johannesburg (1986), Little Morals (1990-91), and Ubu Tells the Truth (1996-97) - as well as numerous individual prints.

Together, the works reflect Caversham’s early history and articulate the artists’ personal perspectives of living and creating in South Africa in the years between late apartheid and the transition to a new democracy. The exhibition comprises over 65 works, presenting selections from the three collaborative portfolios, and individual prints, including the debut of three new William Kentridge prints created specifically for the exhibition.
