Lot Details

WITNESS (www.witness.org) is an international nonprofit organization that has been using the power of video and storytelling for 20 years to open the eyes of the world to human rights abuses. WITNESS empowers people to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools for justice, promoting public engagement and policy change.

Each image in the “Artists Support WITNESS” print portfolio is a collaboration between two artists born in different countries. This print is a collaboration between Alfredo Jaar, born in Chile, and Dayanita Singh, born in India.

Alfredo Jaar was born in Chile. His installations combine elements of photography, architecture, and theater, often featuring graphic documentary imagery in the form of back-lit transparencies and exploring the complex relationships between developed nations and the so-called Third World. Alfredo Jaar's work has been shown extensively around the world. He lives in New York.

Dayanita Singh was born in India. Exhibited widely both in India and abroad, she is best known for her portraits of India's urban middle- and upper-class. Recent solo exhibitions have appeared at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, Les Rencontres d'Arles Festival, Arles, Banhof Museum for Contemporary Art, Berlin, and the Frith St. Gallery, London. She lives in Delhi and London.
