JR turns the world Inside Out

The wish


The winner


The year


I wish for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art project, and together we'll turn the world...INSIDE OUT.

The plan

Create a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work, by making digitally uploaded images into posters to display in diverse communities. Posters can be placed anywhere, from office windows to a wall of an abandoned building. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and viewable online.

INSIDE OUT: the People's Art Project

Current status

The INSIDE OUT project has traveled from Ecuador to Nepal, and Mexico to Palestine, inspiring group actions on varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violenece,and climate change. Over 110,000 portraits have been pasted in 108 countries worldwide. An HBO documentary feature on the project is due for worldwide release this Spring.
