MAXXI Arte presents Vertical Thinking, a tribute to a genius of the contemporary art scene, William Kentridge. The exhibition, curated by Giulia Ferracci, revolves around the installation The Refusal of Time, created for dOCUMENTA 13 at Kassel and presented at MAXXI for the first time in Italy.

Reconfigured for the museum spaces, the powerful, embracing and evocative installation is an explosion of music, images, shadows that transports the visitor into an epic and fable-like dimension in which time is annulled.

Also on show are 14 previously unseen silkscreen prints, the preparatory sketches for The Refusal of Time, a maquette of the set for Refuse the Hour and six works from the MAXXI Arte permanent collection, some of which are on show for the first time.
