"JR: EYE TO THE WORLD", PACE GALLERY, 2021
"JR: EYE TO THE WORLD", PACE GALLERY, LONDON, UK
JUNE 4TH - JULY 3rd, 2021
JR’s practice is rooted in his deep commitment to collaborating with individuals and communities alike. His work is characterised by large-scale photographic interventions in urban environments that address cultural and political issues, often with an emphasis on social justice.
JR: Eye to the World brings together artworks from several significant bodies of work, and explores JR’s unique view of humanity as he transcends borders, politics, and cultural identity through the camera lens.
This exhibition coincides with the artist’s largest solo museum show to date, JR: Chronicles, on view at Saatchi Gallery, in London, from 4 June to 3 October 2021.
In parallel with the exhibition in London, Pace in New York will also display work from JR’s recent project in Tehachapi, California.
