JR exhibits freely in the streets of the world, catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors. He has realized projects across the world in many cities and environments: favelas in Brazil, trains in Kenya, walls in the West Bank, and in Berlin, Germany. With Inside Out New York City, he engaged all five boroughs of New York, with a photo booth truck making visits to the Bronx, Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn, and then setting up shop in Duffy Square to create footage especially for Times Square's screens. This short video is a mashup of Inside Out's global art actions and uses footage from the documentary film "Inside Out: The People's Project," which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and aired on HBO in 2013. The three-minute piece features the creation of self-portrait posters by visitors to New York, and the plastering of Duffy Square with these images.
