J.R.'s TED Prize Wish: Use Art to Turn the World Inside Out

"The city’s the best gallery I could imagine. I would never have to make a book and then present it to a gallery and let them decide if my work was nice enough to show it to people. I would control it directly with the public in the streets."

Date: March 2011

In 2011, French street artist J.R. made a TED Prize wish to use art to give voice to underserved populations. His Inside Out Project is a collective effort that asks people around the world to share their unique story by submitting black and white portraits, which the artist transforms into posters.
