Inside Out – PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography

17 February @ 11:00 pm - 21 February @ 2:00 am AEDT

We are excited to reveal that our Inside Out Project – the global participatory art project initiated by French artist JR – will be taking over Fed Square to mark the opening week of PHOTO 2021 (18 – 21 February 2021). And we want you to take part!

Inside Out is an art project that seeks to give everyone a platform to speak their truth and transforms messages of personal identity into giant works of art. For PHOTO 2021, up to 1000 portraits will be printed as posters and pasted on Fed Square’s iconic main square. PHOTO 2021 is inviting people to submit photos of themselves and a personal statement answering, “What is your truth?”. A selection of these texts will be posted online and on the Screen at Fed Square to accompany the portraits.

The Inside Out project has travelled from Ecuador to Nepal, and from Mexico to Palestine, inspiring group actions on varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violence, climate change. Each Inside Out group action around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online. Over 260,000 people have participated in 129 countries to date, and PHOTO 2021’s group action will be the largest scale project in Australia, with support from the City of Melbourne.

To join in, visit our website to submit a photo of yourself, along with a personal statement answering the question “What is Your Truth?”. You can take your own photo or get family members or a housemate to take one for you. You will have the opportunity to see your face pasted on Fed Square’s iconic main square, as part of a city and state-wide celebration of photography.
