See murals, photographs, videos, films, dioramas, and archival materials of the French-born artist JR. Working at the intersections of photography, social engagement, and street art, JR collaborates with communities by taking individual portraits, reproducing them at a monumental scale, and wheat pasting them—sometimes illegally—in nearby public spaces. This soaring multimedia installation traces JR’s career from his early documentation of graffiti artists as a teenager in Paris to his large-scale architectural interventions in cities worldwide to his more recent digitally collaged murals that create collective portraits of diverse publics. Includes a new epic mural of more than one thousand New Yorkers that is accompanied by audio recordings of each person’s story.
