This year’s exhibition highlighted the US premiere of an original film by South African artist William Kentridge, developed for The Refusal of Time exhibition at Le Laboratoire in Spring 2011 as part of a collaboration between Kentridge and Harvard Professor Peter Galison. The project explores changing notions of time—from absolutes to relativity and black holes– and will continue to develop leading up to the next documenta (13) in Kassel in 2012.
Student design projects exhibited this year all originated with the annual educational theme of The Future of Water, and range from fog-harvested water to plastic that dissolves into seeds. Multiple Harvard student projects were exhibited alongside selected projects from partner programs in Paris and Saudi Arabia.
The night was anchored by a colloquium entitled "Learning with Kentridge – Thoughts on Experiential Education at Harvard" with speakers Peter Galison, Cherry Murray, and Susan Dackerman, moderated by David Edwards, Faculty Director of The Lab.
