For: Maturing / Inside Out Exhibition


For started with an idea: that we can all individually do more for others. As we collected stories from around the world for our inaugural issue, For: Maturing, we wanted to do something extra for the inspiring people in the issue by showcasing them together in one public place. Inspired by the work of the artist JR (also featured in the issue), we worked with his team at the Inside Out Project to mount a public art exhibition in downtown Manhattan.

Up at 304 Hudson Street until November 10th (Update: extended 1 week), it features portraits of people from around the world who are working to improve how we age, installed in 13 windows wrapping around two sides of the building.

Matthias Hollwich, Architect and author of New Aging: Live Smarter Now to Live Better Forever
