I’m Julien de Casabianca, a filmmaker and visual artist from France, and I initiated the project in Paris and London. Recently, some artists have participated in Madrid, Barcelona, soon in Padova, Asuncion, Tirana. It’s a re-appreciation of our urban space. We have to use it for visual expression, communication and advertising. If art is the medium and the streets are our canvases, Outings invites everyone to create a relationship between our living space and our collective culture.

You are more than welcome to participate in our project!

The process:

With our phone in our museum, we take picture of anonymous paintings. No one really watches them in their frames. Small. Secondary. Forgotten. Definitely anonymous. Almost dead.

We bring them back to life in the new world. We print the portraits and then stick them on the walls using paper glue and brush.
