Event Details

It Is Difficult

Alfredo Jaar is one of the foremost practitioners of a social, integrated art practice. His public works simultaneously question the efficacy of art to produce social change, and generate authentic transformation in diverse contexts. Since the early 1980s, Chilean-born Jaar has created incisive installations, photographs, films, and community-based projects that produce new ways of seeing subjects, such as homelessness in Montreal, the holocaust in Rwanda, gold mining in Brazil, and issues related to the border between Mexico and the United States. These works are noted for their power to establish unexpected platforms of cultural impact and to re-engage desensitized Western audiences with global inequities. Jaar has realized more than sixty public interventions throughout the world. He is the recipient of MacArthur Foundation and Guggenheim fellowships; and he represented Chile at the 55th Venice Biennale.
