Men Who Cannot Cry

For his second solo exhibition with Goodman Gallery, Chilean-born New York-based artist Alfredo Jaar presents Men Who Cannot Cry, a series of works inspired by a cairn photographed by the artist on a trip to Robben Island a few years ago. The stones were placed by a group of former political prisoners who returned to the island in 1995 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of their release. This exhibition is a meditation on this stone monument and the poignance it holds for our present political moment.
