What’s On: Encrages

By now we should all know about the staggering endeavour by French social/political/street/(effectively) global artist JR. Encrages, an exhibition in Paris’ Galerie Perrotin, presents the monumental photographs of local people pasted on to walls in the Middle East, the US and Paris, the roofs in India, broken bridges in Africa and Brazil’s favelas. The move onto the walls of a gallery serves as a contextual documentary of JR’s ouvre, with films and unseen artworks bringing together an extraordinary career to date from the TED Prize winner of 2011. On show until January 7.
