Day & Time

Join the MIT List Visual Arts Center for a screening of Paper & Glue. This documentary follows acclaimed French artist JR as he travels around the world, uniting communities and working to challenge perspectives through his monumental projects. From early illicit graffiti videos captured on Paris rooftops at night, to the US-Mexico border, to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, to a current collaboration at a California supermax prison, the film follows JR as he turns these communities inside out, turning images of residents into eye-catching and immersive art installations. Paper & Glue follows the Oscar-nominated Faces Places, which was directed by JR along with Agnès Varda.
