JR: Chronicles

The first major museum exhibition of the work of the French artist JR encompasses murals, films and countless photographs. It provides an overview of his career so far, from documentation of graffiti artists he produced as a teenager in Paris to his large-scale interventions in cities worldwide to his recent digitally collaged murals that serve as collective portraits of diverse
publics. This show is curated by the Brooklyn Museum in New York. For the occasion, the Groninger Museum will work with graffiti and street artists to create a series of portraits of local residents inside and outside the building. Part of the museum’s substantial street art
collection will also be on display.
