Galerie Lelong & Co., New York is pleased to announce THE TEMPTATION TO EXIST, a solo exhibition by Alfredo Jaar. For over four decades, Alfredo Jaar (b. 1956, Santiago, Chile) has used photography, film, installation, and new media to create compelling works that examine complex socio-political issues and the ethics and limits of representation. The exhibition is constructed in two moments with two major installations, both presented in the U.S. for the first time. A newly commissioned work by the artist is concurrently on view in the Whitney Biennial (through September 5, 2022).
This exhibition is dedicated to Letizia Battaglia (b. March 5, 1935 – d. April 13, 2022).
