For future locations (next stop is Las Vegas) you can follow the plans on their website or Instagram. Discuss JR here.
Instagram recently introduced their video feature, not many people were getting too excited over it. But, one month after the update, much more people are appreciating and using it. Artists, galleries, art collectors and enthusiasts are only some of them. While the old photo feature was very helpful when it comes to sharing new works, projects, plans, sketches, the video feature gives IG users a chance to explore things deeper, show more details, show the creative process, literally show wider picture of things, and even […]
Last week, the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York hosted the opening of JR and José Parlá’s collaborative showing entitled The Wrinkles of the City, Havana. The joint works were based on the time they spent in Cuba a year ago painting street murals together (covered) as part of JR’s continuing project Wrinkles of the City where he photographs senior citizens and pastes their portraits on the walls of city buildings. An example of this was outside the showspace in the form of a mural which the two created several weeks ago (covered). Take a look at all the […]
