Event Type Speaker
Organizer/Author
Throughout his career, Alfredo Jaar has found ways to address and depict unthinkable but very real atrocities—genocide, ethnic and political violence. By using text, installation, media tracking, and interactive elements, his work demands and facilitates reflection. With his highly regarded Rwanda Project 1994–2000, Jaar depicted the horrific violence—things beyond the imagination—by exploiting the idea that the image itself is no longer enough. In a talk titled "It Is Difficult," Jaar will present and discuss a series of public interventions realized in the last five years. These projects will also serve as an introduction to the themes of a course Jaar will be leading this Fall at SFAI as Fellow of the Center for Public Practice. Alfredo Jaar is an artist, architect, and filmmaker who lives and works in New York. He was born in Santiago de Chile in 1956. His work has been shown extensively around the world including in the Venice, São Paulo, Johannesburg, Sydney, Istanbul, and Kwangju Biennales as well as Documenta in Kassel. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1986 and a MacArthur Fellowship in 2000. http://www.alfredojaar.net
