The collaboration

“JR: CHRONICLES” is the largest solo museum exhibition of JR, featuring some of his most iconic projects from the past fifteen years, opening on the 4th of June 2021 in the Saatchi Gallery in London.

Art Explora decided to partner with the exhibition because we believe in the social change brought about by JR, and his many contributions to improving the world we live in – aligning perfectly with Art Explora’s own mission. Indeed, JR’s humanistic approach – portraying social realities and authenticity and in turn connecting people – is an essential goal to Art Explora.

Following Saatchi Gallery’s transition to a charity organisation, we note the importance in working alongside other charities to support our shared objectives in making art accessible to all and providing a platform for art education.

Supporting JR: Chronicles at London’s internationally renowned Saatchi Gallery, within the context of Brexit, speaks of our belief that, now more than ever, we should set an example of unity through culture.
