Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over six million people worldwide – more than 1,300 pianos have already been installed in 46 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even on ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
We are delighted to announce that we have five cities signed up for 2015: Florence, South Carolina has already come to an end, but we have presentations still to come in Greater Geneva in June, Paris in June & July, Stockholm in August and Canary Wharf in September. We are currently working with a number of potential partners for 2015 so more new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

What would happen if a city placed pianos in random public places? This short film covers just that. In January 2014, the Arts Centre Melbourne brought the internationally touring art project by British Artist Luke Jerram to Melbourne. There pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. They have brought out the inner musician in many a passing-by Melburnian in the middle of the Southern Summer. There is absolutely nothing serious about it, and is a way for complete strangers to engage with one another over a common interest. You’d be surprised at how common it is to engage an audience.
