Celebrate the voices of SF in The Chronicles of San Francisco, by internationally recognized artist JR. Over the course of two months in early 2018, the artist set up a mobile studio in 22 locations around San Francisco, where he filmed and interviewed nearly 1,200 people from across the city's multifaceted communities. In the completed work, a digital mural scrolls across a seamless bank of screens, bringing together the faces and untold stories of the people we encounter every day. Presented in SFMOMA's Roberts Family Gallery off of Howard Street, this work is free and accessible to the public.
For his “how we live now” tour of San Francisco, French artist JR—not his real name—set up mobile studios at 22 locations around town for two months early last year where he filmed and interviewed 1,200 people from an array of communities. The completed work, which takes the form of a digital mural projected across 100 feet of multiple screens, brings together the unique, yet everyday, faces and places of San Francisco.
