Artist Martin Pelenur curated by JR's studio director Marc Azoulay

Portrait
Martin sees the world in a specific way, he asks questions and tries to provide answers. His work is not only aesthetically interesting and beautiful, it has a reason for it.”

JR'S STUDIO DIRECTOR • CURATOR • ART COLLECTOR • WHITNEY MUSEUM

Before becoming the right-hand man of one of France's most influential contemporary artists, Marc Azoulay worked as an investment banker. But it was his love for art and the change it can do for people that made him leave his day job. Marc is currently the studio director for JR where they've created a community of artists that Marc is greatly involved with. The self-taught curator put together his first show this passed May at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
