As an artist, architect, and filmmaker, Alfredo Jaar is one of the foremost artistic visionaries of our time. Born in Santiago de Chile, Jaar now lives and works in New York. Over the last four decades, seminal projects concerned with the working conditions of Brazilian gold miners, the detainment of Vietnamese boat people by the Hong Kong government, and the slaughter of Tutsi by Hutu death squads in Rwanda have simultaneously asserted and questioned art’s ability to raise awareness, change social norms, and advance social justice.
