Zoetrope: All-Story

JR

JR exhibits freely in the streets of the world, engaging a public that might not typically visit museums. In 2011, he received the TED Prize and started the Inside Out Project. His recent projects include a collaborative art installation in a maximum security prison in California, a Time magazine cover about guns in America, a video mural for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, a collaboration with the New York City Ballet, an Academy Award–nominated documentary with Agnès Varda, a large-scale pasting around the Louvre’s pyramid, interventions at the 2016 Rio Olympics, a permanent exhibition on Ellis Island, and an installation at the US-Mexico border fence. As he remains anonymous, JR leaves space for an encounter between subject/protagonist and passerby/interpreter. His work is about raising questions.
