Inside Out Project travelled to The Substation, Singapore’s first independent contemporary arts centre, in November. The photobooth captured 88 participants whose portraits are up on the building facade.
Fun fact: The Substation’s building was first constructed in 1926 as a power substation. In 1990, the building was reconstructed to be an arts centre founded by playwright-dramatist Kuo Pao Kun.
On March 2, 2011, JR won the TED prize at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and called for the creation of a global participatory art project with the potential to change the world. This project is called INSIDE OUT.
Inspired by JR’s large‐format street “pastings”, INSIDE OUT gives everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement for what they stand for. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.
Each INSIDE OUT group action around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online. Over 260,000 people have participated in 129 countries.
The INSIDE OUT project has traveled from Ecuador to Nepal, from Mexico to Palestine, inspiring group actions on varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violence, climate change. Discover the extent of the project through some selected actions.
