Accompanying JR’s Lazarides Rathbone exhibition this features material from the Women Are Heroes project alongside his photographs from his Face 2 Face and Portrait of a Generation initiatives. Sought-after imagery from JR’s work in Rio favela Morro da Providencia is included. Street Artist JR has been described as “the Cartier-Bresson of the 21st century”. JR creates pervasive art that spreads uninvited on the buildings of the slums in France, the walls in the Middle East, the broken bridges in African, and the favelas in Brazil. JR has travelled to distant and dangerous places many times. Not only does he infiltrate communities, but he also befriends inhabitants by recruiting them as models or collaborators.
