The Standing March was a major public artwork from a collaboration with Darren Aronofsky exhibited in Paris during the UN’s COP 21 climate conference. The video projection was created to remind leaders that the world is watching as they gather to negotiate a deal aimed at keeping global warming below 2°C. It was projected at night on buildings including the Assemblée Nationale, The Louvre, The Pantheon, The Musée Picasso, and The Bibliotheque Sainte Genevieve over the time spanning the conference. Music accompanied the projection, created by 3D from Massive Attack.

In April 2015, the New York Times Magazine reached out to JR to think about a project together. JR had been working on immigration, and he told them he would love to continue what he had started on Ellis Island in the city.
After nearly 800 screenings all over the world, ELLIS is now available for free on iTunes in over 85 countries! We would like to thank all of those that organized screenings in their communities, we never had imagined the film could go this far.

Lazarides welcomes JR back to London from October 16th - November 12th 2015. The exhibit, Crossing, features brand new works from the series Les Bosquets and Unframed Ellis Island. The showcase will feature a mix of color prints as well as the artist's signature wood mounted monochromatic paper pieces. Coinciding with the exhibition, the short film Les Bosquets will be showing at the London Film Festival. Click here for more information.
Discover the trailer for ELLIS, a short film starring Robert De Niro, written by Eric Roth, directed by JR.
The short narrative film, ELLIS, awakens our collective memory. Leaving their past behind them, immigrants fleeing poverty, discrimination, dictatorship arrived there. Ellis Island was the gateway to the United States for millions of immigrants. Upon arrival, they were processed, approved or denied access. Due to sickness or simply tiredness, many were placed in the hospital. A purgatory of sorts, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, where thousands of men, women and children awaited their fate.
A solo show of JR's recent works will be at Galerie Perrotin in Paris from September 12 - October 17. The exhibit consists of work from his last ten years, featuring a selection of videos, ink on wood pieces, and recent photographs. The opening is on September 12th. Click here for more information.
The documentary on the Inside Out Project which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in 2013, "Inside Out: The People's Art Project", will be available for purchase on iTunes in the UK, US, and Canada on October 5th.
