JR "PATTERN" Hong Kong @ Galerie Perrotin

French artist and photographer JR has built an incredible reputation through art and philanthropy.

French artist and photographer JR has built an incredible reputation through art and philanthropy. Spanning the world over in his exploits, JR’s latest stop takes him to Hong Kong with a recent exhibition opening at Galerie Perrotin. Much of JR’s work centers around bringing to light the marginalized. The city of Hong Kong has long had major socioeconomic issues with a strong disparity between the extremely rich and the poor. Titled “PATTERN,” the exhibition combined aspects of JR’s well-documented INSIDE OUT series on select installations involving metal and woodwork to further accentuate and reappropriate his cause. The exhibition will run until November 10, 2012.
