Come this Saturday, 14 April at 2.30PM, STPI’s new artist-in-residence Chilean-born artist Alfredo Jaar will share concepts behind his recent projects. Jaar has received wide critical acclaim for his thought-provoking practice that addresses global sociopolitical concerns.
Having realised 60 public interventions around the world, Jaar has more than 50 monographic publications on his work, published.
His work has been shown extensively around the world – including The Biennales of Venice (1986, 2007, 2009, 2013), Sao Paulo (1987, 1989, 2010) and Documenta in Kassel (1987, 2002). Notable individual exhibitions were hosted at places such as The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; Whitechapel, London; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome; and Moderna Museet, Stockholm. A major retrospective of his work took place in summer 2012 at three institutions in Berlin: Berlinische Galerie, Neue Gesellschaft fur bildende Kunst e.V. and Alte Nationalgalerie.
In 2014 the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki hosted the most extensive retrospective of his career.
