Alfredo Jaar: The Rwanda Project is a solo exhibition by the Chilean-born and New York-based artist. Jaar’s multidisciplinary practice explores power relations, socio-political stratifications, and issues of migration and discrimination.
The exhibition consists of selected works from The Rwanda Project (1994-2000) and is largely derived from Jaar’s own experiences in Rwanda in 1994 witnessing the then recent aftermath of the genocide. The artist’s cutting commentary towards the world’s muted response to these events at that time is palpable.
The series of technical and poignant installations highlight news media and the public’s voyeuristic gaze. As a critique of the act of looking and seeing, Jaar translates and integrates images into experiences that attempt to highlight the complexity of trauma and the memory that extends beyond that captured within a visual.
It will be accompanied by a series of public programmes. The exhibition is made possible with support from Goodman Gallery.
