Pace is pleased to present "The Chronicles of San Francisco - Sketches," an exhibition of new work by French artist and photographer JR (@jr), on view at Pace’s gallery in Palo Alto from February 6 – March 24, 2019. Encompassing portraits, works on paper, video installations, lightboxes, and etched glass works, the exhibition is derived from and inspired by JR's upcoming monumental mural project "The Chronicles of San Francisco," opening at SFMOMA (@SFMOMA) in Spring 2019.

Known for his large-scale urban works that address socio-economic and political issues, JR created the new series in honor of the city and people of #SanFrancisco. The city’s long muralist tradition and its stark contrasts—featuring both immense innovation and wealth as well as one of the country’s highest rates of child homelessness—has made it a vibrant and complex site for the artist to explore and capture. Over the course of the project, nearly 1,200 people were filmed, photographed and interviewed; each person choosing the way they were to be represented in the mural.

“In a painting, it’s usually the perspective that focuses the attention of the viewer. With this new mural technique, we break the perspective: Every person is presented at the same size, captured with the same light. No one is more important than another. It is not a group photo, but rather a group of photos...The mural aims to be a picture of society, not depicting good and bad, but rather showing that both sides are present in everyone.”—#JR
