Artist Talk: The Rwanda Project 1994-2000
Friday 15 November at 09:30
Goodman Gallery London presents 25 Years Later, a selection of works from Alfredo Jaar’s The Rwanda Project 1994-2000 in commemoration of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. The seminal series has been exhibited around the world, from Finland to Brazil, and now marks it’s UK debut.
The Chilean-born, New-York based artist, architect and filmmaker is one of the most uncompromising and compelling artists working today and an important artist of his generation dealing with issues around social justice.
Jaar has been working at the forefront of contemporary thinking concerning human rights violations, migration and political and social unrest for over twenty years. His practice responds to news stories around the world and asks viewers to reconsider the power of images through a renewed process of looking and absorbing.
The artist dedicated six years to The Rwanda Project 1994-2000 in which he seeks to bring attention to personal stories to pay tribute to the victims of the genocide.
