A global art project is bringing paintings out of museums and onto the streets.

A global art project is bringing paintings out of museums and onto the streets.

Julien de Casabianca was struck by a thought when visiting the Louvre last year. When noticing a painting of a female prisoner hidden away in a corner of the museum, he wondered what it would be like to free her, to give her the space and recognition she couldn’t receive within the walls of the gallery.

It was from this idea that the Outings Project was born. A collective of artists who are encouraged by Casabianca to take photos inside galleries and museums, print their images and post them on the world’s streets, to breathe new life into their otherwise hidden existence.

Since beginning his quest, Casabianca has been joined by people in over eighteen cities around the world, who have followed his message.

The artists are asked to hang the photos using a gentle wallpaper glue, on dishevelled and unloved walls so that they may remain as long as possible – with the least amount of adverse effects on their surroundings.

He hopes that by bringing these artworks into a more public forum and away from the stark walls of institutions, that these artworks will get the attention they deserve and bring beauty to the walls and streets they adorn.
