One Night Only: December 1
Prepare to be knocked out by art that’s not like any you’ve seen before—unless you are familiar with the amazing work of French artist JR. His large-scale photographs of human faces of all racial and cultural backgrounds have covered structures across the globe for almost two decades. Using his projects as a bridge to span our many cultural divides, PAPER & GLUE explores art’s unique ability to challenge perspectives and unite communities. JR, for instance, uses those unforgettable, large faces on either side of Mexican and U.S. border towns within visual distance of each other. One of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in 2018, JR is a visual artist who exhibits freely in the streets of the world, pasting huge portraits of anonymous people in unexpected places. Known for his 2017 Academy Award-nominated documentary FACES PLACES, JR in PAPER & GLUE turns the camera on his own work, from early illicit graffiti videos captured on Paris rooftops at night, to the border, to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, to a current collaboration at a California supermax prison, turning these communities inside out by turning images of residents into eye-catching and immersive art installations.
