INSIDE OUT PROJECT: I AM AN ARTIST
As part of JR’s global art community project, ‘Inside Out’, I led an artist-based action to present the faces of our 130 emerging artists in a unifying statement ‘I Am An Artist’, at the fair during Frieze Week, May 2019.
The featured individuals ranged from local Greenpoint artists to those who had travelled from across the globe to present their artwork at the fair in Brooklyn. Community partners were also invited to participate as creative makers. The practice, processes and inspiration of these individuals are incredibly diverse but they were all unified under the title of the ‘Artist’.
The large images lined the glass-fronted space that sits on Noble St and Franklin St, engaging the public community as they walked along these streets.
