JR is unstoppable and ubiquitous. At any given moment, the French artist, whose photographs appear on walls around the world, is in one place, while his work is exhibited, pasted, and enjoyed by people in many other places simultaneously. As we interview him, a week before his multi-part New York City Ballet Art Series project debuts to the public, he is pasting with a small team outside the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. A few days later, he will install a photograph of 80 ballet dancers on vinyl across the entire floor of the theater's lobby, in addition to 10 close-up photographs of them on wood on the ground floor. At the same time, he has an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cincinnati open until February, he opened another exhibition at Dallas Contemporary on January 11, he's releasing a book about the Unframed project in Marseille this month, and he has Inside Out photobooth trucks in Dallas and in Paris.
