Platform to discuss various themes related to art nationwide and internationally.

Urgent Talk 031:
Things Fall Apart - Alfredo Jaar

Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available

New York-based Chilean artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar is internationally recognized for his multimedia installations exploring sociopolitical issues such as segregation, discrimination, and the relationship between the economically advantaged and disadvantaged. Talks are also an important part of Jaar's creative practice, and he holds workshops and discussions around the globe touching upon problems that are often overlooked in society.
With Donald Trump’s rise to power in the US, Britain’s exit from the EU, and moves to expel immigrants from a number of nations, the sociopolitical milieu of our world today is giving stark expression to the very social issues Jaar has been spotlighting. Join Jaar in pondering just how we should confront these situations, and whether art can make a difference.
