This is JR's first solo museum exhbition, presenting over a decade of activity highlighting the work he has developed and shown in public spaces around the world and featuring work from interventions such as "Women are Heroes", "Wrinkles in the City", "Photobooth" and "Face to Face" among others.
The exhibition includes wheat pasted images, photography, video projections, a large sculpture and an interactive photobooth functioning as the engine for an outdoor component.
The Contemporary Arts Center's 'Inside Out' project in communities throughout Greater Cincinnati during 2012, culminated in a community celebration with international street artist, project founder and TED Prize winner, JR. Watch the video.
On February 26, 2011 the Contemporary Arts Center opened Keith Haring: 1978-1982. JR took a break from his LA "Wrinkles in the City" project to help us celebrate Haring's legacy as a forerunner of contemporary street art & DIY art distribution. JR talked to the captivated audience about the art projects that have taken him all over the world and about being the first artist to win the TED Prize (which he accepted just days later).
