The artist JR owns the biggest art gallery in the world. He exhibits in the streets of the world, making art for all and catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors. From his very beginning when he found a camera on the Paris subway to the present days with projects like WOMEN ARE HEROES, THE WRINKLES OF THE CITY, UNFRAMED JR has been invited to make and share art all around the world.
In 2011, JR receives the TED Prize and wins a "wish to change the world". He creates Inside Out, an international participatory art project that allows people worldwide to get their picture taken and paste it. Over 200,000 posters were posted in more than 130 countries. Each Inside Out project around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online for all to share.
