The Galerie Perrotin in Paris plays home to JR’s first major solo show, running through January 7, 2011. A self-proclaimed “Urban Artivist,” JR’s art is engrossed in a personal mission to unearth the humanity within the concrete urban landscape on a global scale. By flyposting his large installations in cities from Paris to Tel Aviv, the metropolitan jungles of the world both bear witness and participate directly in this ephemeral street art. The show will be a scaled-down exhibition of his omnipresent works, and transport his larger-than-life photographs of anonymous portraits from the walls of the streets onto the walls of the gallery.
