Outings Project

Participatory street art

Outings is a participatory street art project created by the French photographer and filmmaker Julien de Casabianca. His work has always been related to the street, as in his first movie Night after the rain (2009), written by Gao Xingjian, Nobel Prize in Literature.

Outings’ story began in 2014, while he was visiting the Louvre, there was one lonely girl that caught his eye - Mademoiselle Rivière - painted by Ingres in 1806. “She was beautiful. She seemed lost amongst the many large paintings and looked bored,” says Casabianca. “I had a ‘Prince Charming’ impulse to free her from the frame and the museum.” This first wheat paste on the streets of Paris has since led to hundreds of portraits from local museums being unleashed in cities around the world.

Julien de Casabianca aims to do more than select portraits from museums, find interesting walls for installation, and then photograph the installations for exhibition. He strongly believes in engaging citizens in the process and has done so thanks to participatory workshops in cities across the world, encouraging inhabitants to connect to museum collections in their city.

Thanks to the support of the National Gallery of Slovenia, the French cultural Institute in Ljubljana, the City of Ljubljana and the curator Stefani Markovic, Julien de Casabianca is happy to extend his participatory art project to Ljubljana.
