Tonight at 9 p.m. tune in to HBO to watch the documentary on French street artist JR’s Inside Out Project which premiered earlier this month at the TriBeCa Film Festival. JR‘s Inside Out Project inspires people around the world to establish their identities in their local communities. You simply email your portrait to JR, he sends back the print, and you paste it wherever you want. In the video above, director Alastair Siddons and JR discuss their decision to document this incredible global project and how it grew beyond their expectations.
In addition to the documentary airing tonight, New Yorkers can experience the Inside Out Project for themselves. Every month New York City’s world-renowned Times Square, in conjunction with the Times Square Advertising Coalition and Times Square Alliance, allots an artist a one-of-a-kind “3 minutes of fame.” Those minutes consist of a synchronized display on nearly all of the advertising screens in the square known as the Midnight Moment. Fans still have time to check it out for themselves as it plays from 11:57 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. every night through the end of the month.
