I love art gatherings. Those hosted by JR – a talented French street artist – are definitely not to be missed. Last week, a rendezvous was held at the Palais de Tokyo, the “temple” for contemporary art, which gave people the chance to take part in JR’s “Inside Out” project. After a worldwide tour through the Middle East, the United States, and Japan (Fukushima), the photobooth truck arrived in Paris for the first time. The concept is as follows: individuals strike a pose, alone, in front of a graphic black and white polka dot background. A giant black and white poster of your portrait is then printed and you can glue it on a public wall, which, on this occasion, was in the huge square in front of the Palais de Tokyo. It creates a powerful visual image in support of JR’s “One Wish to Change the World,” an artistic initiative for which he received the Ted Prize in 2011. It’s also a project I strongly support, as it offers anonymous faces the opportunity to be part of a wonderfully expressive collage of individualities, morphologies, and origins, while creating virtual or real links. I met a lot of families while I was there, and I myself was with my relatives and James, a member of my creative team. If you wish to take part in the project of this committed artist, follow his journey around the world at: http://www.insideoutproject.net/
