About this title

Synopsis:

The definitive retrospective monograph on JR, the enigmatic Parisian artist-photographer, and his cross-media, participatory practice.

JR?s site-specific international projects have a wide audience spanning urban and youth cultures, and art and activism.

Made in close collaboration with JR, the book features previously unpublished work-inprogress photographs and behind-the-scenes documentation of his studios in Paris and New York.

In today?s climate of globalization, JR?s public interventions across the world are urgent acts that give voice and presence to both subject and viewer through the language of photography.

Includes all bodies of his work, collaborations with artists and institutions such as the New York City Ballet, a section devoted to artworks and exhibitions, and an illustrated chronology.

Features a specially commissioned graphic novel introduction by Joseph Remnant and a survey essay by Nato Thompson, Chief Curator of Creative Time, New York.

Product Description:

The first major and in-depth retrospective monograph on JR, the enigmatic and anonymous Parisian photographer/street artist/activist behind some of the world's most provocative large-scale public photography projects.

Created in close collaboration with JR, this book includes all bodies of his work, his collaborations with other artists and institutions such as the New York Ballet and previously unpublished behind-the-scenes documentation of his studios in Paris and New York, where he and his creative collaborators live and work.

Introducing JR 's story is a specially commissioned graphic novel by comic artist Joseph Remnant, which charts his rise from graffiti roots and his decision to become a full-time artist.

Features a survey essay by Nato Thompson, Chief Curator of Creative Time, New York.
