Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art will present the exhibition by Alfredo Jaar. Chilean-born Alfredo Jaar is an internationally recognised artist who lives and works in New York. At the core of his installations are ethical issues.
Jaar’s experiential works address humanitarian crises, collective memories left behind by dictatorships, and media imageries with their concealed racism. Jaar’s art gives a face and a name to things that are familiar from the media; behind the events they zero in on the story of an individual, a story that leaves no one cold.
The show in Kiasma is Jaar’s first major solo exhibition in Finland. His work has previously been presented at the ARS 95 and ARS 11 exhibitions.
