JR’s “The Chronicles of New York” Hits Domino Park

By Eliza Jordan

February 28, 2020

Brooklyn’s new waterfront Domino Park has gained a new attraction—“The Chronicles of New York,” a mural by the French artist JR. Presented by the Brooklyn Museum, the piece is in connection to the artist’s current exhibition on view entitled “JR: Chronicles.”

“Showing at the Brooklyn Museum has been a long dream of mine in the city that adopted me nine years ago,” JR told us.

For the “The Chronicles of New York,” JR photographed over 1,000 New York residents and enlarged them on the side of stacked shipping containers in the park.

“Sometimes we would have a very chill day and not many people coming by the truck, so we got to spend time with people and hang with them. It is a very intense shooting process,” said JR of his process shooting the portraits. “We have to photograph every single person, remember how they want to be represented, build the whole mural… This is why we had a big team!”

The installation was specially designed in collaboration with the architectural firm LOT-EK—a company known for its sustainable approaches to construction through the reuse of industrial objects like the shipping container.

“JR: Chronicles” is on view at the Brooklyn Museum through May 3.
