A-level Trip to JR Chronicles at The Saatchi...

Back in October A-level Art, Graphics and Photography students were invited to attend the JR: Chronicles exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London. This was the largest solo museum exhibition to date of the internationally recognised French artist JR, featuring some of his most iconic projects from the past fifteen years.

JR is a TED Prize winner, Oscar nominated filmmaker, and one of Time’s 100 most influential people of 2018. He has received critical acclaim for his global art projects that bring together diverse groups of participants and create dialogue around critical social issues, from women’s rights to immigration, to gun control.

Students were led on a guided tour around the exhibition in which they were questioned and answered with some insightful and meaningful interpretations.

Following the exhibition students have produced a project in which they chose one of these critical social issues including covid, environment, black lives matter, future living and women’s safety and have come up with some stunning photographs and impactful pieces of work. Here are some photographs from the day and also examples of their inspired final pieces.
