Wow, that is all we can say at this point. We knew that artist JR can mobilize a crowd, but we can certainly not remember the last time a gallery opening with such a bag. We previewed the ‘Encourages’ Exhibition by the artist at Galerie Perrotin last week and also showed you the massive wall artwork on the outside of the gallery.
On November 19th, the exhibition opened with a huge crowd and a live set by Massive Attack. Not only was the entire courtyard of the gallery packed, people from the buildings around the gallery also enjoyed the music and scene.
