Alfredo Jaar

Alfredo Jaar is a Chilean-born artist, architect, and filmmaker working in New York City. Jaar uses installation, photography, and film to cover controversial topics including war, genocide, and political corruption. The Rwanda Project, one of his most well-known series of work was a six-year project comprised of both installation and photography documenting the horrors of war and mass death, specifically focused on the genocide that occurred in Rwanda in 1994.

Jaar's work explores how we are all affected by the oversaturation of violence in the media, leaving society susceptible to a general apathy when it comes to such horrific crimes. Jaar has had several solo exhibitions, including shows at the New Museum of Contemporary Photography, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome. Jaar's work has also been featured on Art: 21.
