BRIEF ABOUT: French artist JR’s (www.jr-art.net) first solo museum exhibition, featuring more than a decade of work seen in public spaces around the globe. Describing himself as both an “urban artivist” and “photograffeur,” JR has won international acclaim (including the 2011 TED prize) for postering arresting black and white portraits of local community members upon a variety of city surfaces.

From buildings, favela walls and city blocks to stairs, bridges, trains and water towers, JR re-humanizes the urban environment with the faces of those that live its spaces. Outside the often cryptic codes of graffiti, his photographic “actions” and global campaign of collecting (and publishing) peoples’ stories move those on the margins into the mainstream.
