William Kentridge (b. 1955, Johannesburg) has held solo exhibitions at LaM, Villeneuve-d’Ascq (2020); Kunstmuseum Basel (2019); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2017); National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul (2015); Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2013); Tate Modern, London (2012); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2002) and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. (2002). His work has been included in major international surveys including Documenta in Kassel (2012, 2002, 1997) and the 51st, 48th and 45th Venice Biennial (2005, 1999, 1993). He is the recipient of the Praemium Imperial Award (2019), Penagos Prize for Drawing of the MAPFRE Foundation (2014), the Kyoto Prize (2010), the Goslaer Kaiserring (2003) and the Carnegie Prize (2000). His works for stage include The Head and the Load (2018), Wozzeck (2017), The Nose (2010) and The Magic Flute (2005). He lives and works in Johannesburg.

Denis Hirson (1951, Cambridge) is a South African writer, lecturer and one-time actor, now living in Paris. Author of seven books, almost all of them at the frontier between prose and poetry and concerned with the memory of South Africa at the time of apartheid. These include The House Next Door to Africa (David Philip Publishers), as well as We Walk Straight So You Better Get Out the Way, best-selling I Remember King Kong (the Boxer), the poetry collection Gardening In the Dark; the novel The Dancing and the Death on Lemon Street (shortlisted for the Commonwealth Book Prize, 2012) and White Scars, a lyrical meditation on reading and its significance in our lives, runner-up for the Alan Paton Award for non-fiction in 2007 (all were published by Jacana Media). On the occasion of the exhibition, Mudam has partnered with Éditions Dilecta to publish a book of interviews between William Kentridge and Denis Hirson, À pas de panthère.
