Summary

An inspiration for those trying to create socially engaged art and make a difference in marginalized communities. – Smithsonian Magazine

The most comprehensive monograph on the enigmatic French artist – updated to include brand-new work

Filled with stunning photography, this extraordinary monograph charts a range of JR’s collaborative projects executed across the globe.

Created in close collaboration with the artist, it features chapters on each of JR’s major bodies of work – from Expo2Rue, using the street as his canvas to launch his career as an artist, to The Chronicles of Miami, which opened in November 2023. It also includes his collaborations with other artists and institutions such as the New York City Ballet, film director Agnès Varda, and Time magazine.

A foreword by Hollywood legend George Lucas, a specially commissioned graphic novel by comic artist Joseph Remnant, an updated survey essay by Nato Thompson, and a short piece by Italian film director Alice Rohrwacher all come together to tell JR’s fascinating story.
