Street Artist JR In Brooklyn

Placement is Key in the New Installations

French Street Artist JR has begun his “Inside Outside” global art campaign as a result of winning the 2011 TED prize and the first results appeared in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood this week. Giving the photographing job to anyone who would like to participate, the campaign provides you with your own large scale print to install as you wish. Keeping with the innovative spirit in which JR has plastered his mammoth sized portraits elsewhere in cities around the world, these images of locals are installed in an integrated, human manner. Facing the world, they are not simply vanity exercises but anthropological in nature. Welcome to Brooklyn, JR! Hope to see you at the museum next spring.
