[dis]ABLED InsideOut Gathering Day – FREE
May 30, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm| Free
[dis]ABLED InsideOut is a collaboration between the French artist JR’s InsideOut and Leopoldine Huyghues Despointes. JR won the TED prize in 2011, and he created the InsideOut project which is a large-scale global participatory art project with the potential to change the world.
Each InsideOut gives anyone the opportunity to share their portrait, and take part in a unique art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of public artwork.
For [dis]ABLED InsideOut, the aim is to change the world’s perception about people with physical [dis]abilities. It is about encouraging everyone to pursue their own dreams.
May 30th, is the first “Gathering Day” that we are hosting where we hope to gather at least 400 portraits of individuals that are directly and indirectly involved with [dis]abilities.
There will be four different stations for people to have the opportunity to take portraits. Inside there will be three photo booths indoors, and the InsideOut Photo Booth truck outside. In addition to the portrait opportunity there will be a DJ booth outdoors for everyone to enjoy.
Over multiple Gathering Days, and other events, we expect to gather over 3000 portraits. In October, 2015, we will post all the portraits as a public exhibition in a symbolic location in New York City.
