JR presents The Wrinkles of the City Video from Shanghai

Street Art // Monday, 10 Jan 2011


In October 2010, our Shanghai correspondent visited the opening of JR's Wrinkles of the City at the Magda Dansyz Gallery in Shanghai, China. Now, one of the biggest artists of the moment, and the 2011 TED Award winner has released a short video based on the work and his time in Shanghai.

As our writer wrote at the time, to provide context for the video below, "Previously installed in Cartagena, Spain, Wrinkles of the City directs the public gaze to the oldest residents of a city—incarnates of a city’s history throughout economic and socio-cultural transformation."
