Alfredo Jaar: Collection exhibition at Tate Modern and talks at Raw Academie and Portland State University

Work by Alfredo Jaar is on view as part of A Year in Art: 1973, a collections display at Tate Modern running until 18 October 2020. Using the overthrow of South America’s first democratically elected socialist president, Salvador Allende, on 11 September 1973 and the subsequent outcry as a departure point, the exhibition explores how art was utilised as a form of protest to express dissent, to bear witness and to survive through turbulent times. Jaar will also give a talk entitled ‘It is Difficult’, firstly at RAW Academie’s Session 7 in Dakar (2-7 December 2019) and again at Portland State University on 17 December.
