A major exhibition by the celebrated French artist JR is coming to an end, with only one week left for visitors and residents to experience the show. The exhibition is on show at the QM Gallery in Katara until 31st May 2017.

Organised by Qatar Museums (QM) under the leadership of its Chairperson, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, JR – Répertoire, features some of the key series that have made the artist famous around the world, and includes a video lounge where selected video works can be viewed.

Khalid Yousef Al Ibrahim, Chief Strategic Planning Officer at Qatar Museums said:

“We are very proud to have hosted an exhibition by the internationally acclaimed artist JR and are impressed by its success. JR – Répertoire is another example of our commitment to bring international artists and world famous works to Qatar, to enrich the lives of those living and visiting here. This exhibition has undoubtedly sparked creativity amongst visitors, we therefore urge those that haven’t seen the show to not miss the chance.”

JR is a French artist turned photographer that maintains anonymity. His work combines art and engaged actions through large-scale outdoor installations, films, photographs and videos, using the streetscape as his canvas and his inspiration, which he claims as the largest art gallery in the world. JR – Répertoire, is made in collaboration with Galerie Perrotin.
