Alfredo Jaar: 50 Years Later
Cecilia Brunson Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar (b.1956), in collaboration with Goodman Gallery. Alfredo Jaar: 50 Years Later marks the time passed since General Augusto Pinochet’s coup over Chilean President Salvador Allende’s democratic government on 11 September 1973. It is against the backdrop of this, one of the harshest military dictatorships in the southern cone, that Jaar produced some of his most poignant work, including his iconic project Public Interventions (Studies on Happiness 1979-1981).
