Touring internationally since 2008, “Play Me, I’m Yours” is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over two million people worldwide – more than 700 pianos have already been installed in 35 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, outside galleries and markets and even on bridges and 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.
Play Me, I’m Yours is now live in Munich and will run until 19 May 2013. The art project will also be in Geneva: 10-23 June, in Paris: 21 June-9 July, in Cleveland Ohio: 19 July – 12 August, in Omaha Nebraska: 24 August – 8 September and in Boston Massachusetts: 27 September – 14 October. Watch this space as we will be announcing further new cities for 2013 & 2014 over the coming months! Read More...
