JR rocketed to international notoriety from his legendary TED Talk in 2011. If you haven’t seen it take a few minutes and click play on the embedded link below. He is one of the few street artists that has leveraged his art to truly make a difference in impoverished cities and villages across the world. When JR won the TED prize at the 2011 TED Conference he called for the creation of a global participatory art project with the potential to change the world. This project is called INSIDE OUT.
Inspired by JR’s large‐format street “pastings”, INSIDE OUT gives everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement for what they stand for. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art. The pastings are still up on the outside wall of Artspace so make sure you swing by and check it out for yourself.
