(Partner Article) The French contemporary street artist JR arrives at the Brooklyn Museum with a dedicated exhibition, open from October 4, 2019 to May 3, 2020.

Over the last two decades, the artist's ambitious projects, known for having successively concealed and impressively enhanced the Louvre pyramid with his collages, have earned him international attention and redefined the boundaries of the Louvre. street art.

The exhibition "JR: Chronicles", including many photographs, videos, dioramas and archives, is the first exhibition entirely dedicated to the artist in North America.

Community and social engagement ideas are often underpinned in JR's works, including his giant portraits sometimes stuck illegally in public spaces, or his recent fresco recreating a collective portrait of New York City through more than 1,000 individual portraits of New Yorkers. The artist makes a point of honor to transcribe the voices of "ordinary people".

"JR: Chronicles" is part of Brooklyn Falls for France, an initiative of the Cultural Services of the Embassy of France to highlight the Franco-American cultural events.
