Details

This major exhibition by internationally renowned artist Alfredo Jaar shares recent work not shown before in the UK, and coincides with exhibitions and projects that encourage the consideration of the potential of art as protest.

The exhibition in the Underground Gallery represents a rare opportunity to experience the profound practice of Jaar, who works across film, photography and installation to cast light on aspects of current world affairs that are seldom explored in international news reporting.
