The Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center presents world-renowned French artist JR’s first solo museum exhibition, featuring more than a decade of work seen in public spaces around the globe. Describing himself as both an “urban artivist” and “photograffeur,” JR has won international acclaim (including the 2011 TED prize) for postering arresting black & white portraits of community members upon a variety of city surfaces. This show celebrates the breadth and ambition of what JR dubs “Pervasive Art,” reflecting his interventions by way of wheat pasted images, photography, video projections, sculpture as well as a mobile photobooth.This booth will be housed in a van that travels to multiple locations across greater Cincinnati – giving a facelift to the city through images of itys inhabitants.

OPENING CELEBRATION: Friday, Sep 20
