The Ministry of Artistic Affairs
Wednesday, March 23, 2011
The Ministry of Artistic Affairs loves JR for his sophisticated yet accessible and remarkably effective manner of harnessing the power of art to make the world a better place. We have featured his work a couple times in the past; you can click here to learn more about his process and here to see more of his important work.

In the video below, filmed this month at TED in Long Beach, California, JR makes his audacious TED Prize wish: to use art to turn the world inside out. This is a rare opportunity to watch one of the most compelling artists living today talk about his own art, how he got started, what his projects mean, and the effects he hopes his efforts are having on the world. JR's presentation is funny, charming, educational, passionate and fascinating.

Special thanks to The Wex for sending us this clip and encouraging us to post more about this amazing artist.
