Outings Project: Let’s Move Museum Art To The Streets

Everybody can do it. Use your phone to photograph the portraits of anonymous paintings on museum walls, print them and move them to the streets.

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.

Very good. The only way to bring art to the people.

Great idea! I love it. Art should be for everyone, not just for the ones who can afford the entry fees of the museums!
