Louvre’s Pyramid – level 2

30-11-2023 15:00

French artist JR made the Louvre’s pyramid disappear. The artist hid the famous entrance behind a black and white image of the museum.

The French artist changed buildings and neighbourhoods around the world with his work. In 2009, he covered a slum in Nairobi with pictures of women who live there.

You can see the act in Paris for one more month.

Difficult words: disappear (to go away, to make invisible), entrance (a way in), neighbourhood (a city area).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What other projects have JR undertaken around the world to challenge societal norms?
