The free exhibition at Brooklyn Musem

From October 4, 2019 to May 3, 2020 Brooklyn Museum shows JR’s latest and so far biggest exhibition.

“The centerpiece of the exhibition is The Chronicles of New York City, a new epic mural of more than one thousand New Yorkers that is accompanied by audio recordings of each person’s story. All of the projects on view honor the voices of everyday people and demonstrate JR’s ongoing commitment to community, collaboration, and civic discourse.” Brooklyn Museum

“What makes this exhibit special is his debut of a new mural called The Chronicles of New York, which features a mural of 1,000 New Yorkers, from locals and their pets to friends and fellow artists, even stars like Robert De Niro, Darren Aronofsky and Art Spiegelman. Each person in the mural tells their own relationship to the city in an app created by the artist.” Forbes
