After winning the TED Prize on March 2, 2011, the French-artist JR launched the Inside Out Project, in his first TED Talk. Using his own artistic practice as inspiration, this participatory platform gives individuals and communities the opportunity to make a statement by displaying large-scale black and white portraits in public spaces. Through their “actions,” communities around the world have sparked collaborations and conversations.
Over the past decade more than 400,000 people spanning across 138 countries have participated in the Inside Out Project. The project reached all 5 continents, with over 2,000 actions created. Actions have revolved around a range of topics: diversity, community, feminism, racism, climate change, education, children’s rights and art are just a few of them. Posters are displayed in outdoor spaces that are visible to the public. These Group Action pastings are documented, archived and visible online at www.insideoutproject.net.
This image is taken from the 2013 action in Times Square, NYC where 5,916 posters were pasted.
